  • I wish you'd said how much orange zest! Is that the peel of an orange? How much? I hope this turns out because I'm in the middle of it! I used 1 Tbsp. Orange peel chopped. They're yummy! - 12/5/09

  • I substituted 1/2 the flour for whole wheat flour, nixed the white sugar altogether, and left the cranberries whole. I just used the juice from navel orange, and added the zest (about one tablespoon) and I am very pleased with how they turned out! A very generous cookie for the calories! - 4/14/08
