Cranberry Bliss Cookies

February 22, 2012

These cookies taste just like those Cranberry Bliss bars you can get at Starbucks. Exactly.

I found this recipe when I was searching for something to make with all these oranges I had sitting around. I found a Cranberry Orange Cookie, tweaked it to add some other ingredients I had, and ended up with these yummy cookies.

In these cookies are craisins, white chocolate chips, orange zest, and freshly squeezed orange juice. You can’t go wrong with any of those ingredients!
