Cranberry Brown Sugar Cookies – Like Little Fruity Cakes

I found the recipe for Cranberry Brown Sugar Cookies on the back of a package of Domino Brown Sugar. I cut it out and put it in my to do pile of IMG_3021recipes for a good long while. I finally got around to making them and they are delish. The cookies are not too sweet and are more like little mini fruity cakes than cookies. I also decided that the raisins and cranberries in them gave me a serving of fruit for the day so I completely chowed down without regret.

Here’s how you make them.

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (although I used Vanilla Yogurt)
  • 3 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cloves
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  1. Heat oven to 400 F and lightly grease your cookie sheets.
  2. Beat sugar and butter until light and fluffy. Add eggs and sour cream (or yogurt); beat until creamy.
  3. Stir together flour, baking soda, salt cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves in a small bowl. Gradually add to sugar mixture beating until well mixed.
  4. Stir in cranberries and raisins.
  5. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto cookie sheets (they don’t flatten out so you can put them pretty close).
  6. Bake 8-10 minutes until lightly browned.
