What does cranberry and walnut reminds you of?

End of year holiday season is fast approaching, and I thought of sharing my baking earlier this year.
Last year, I re-posted my Gingerbread house, complete with cut-out plan/ dimensions. As well as Christmas mince pies.

Three years ago I baked this gorgeous, delicious melt in mouth, Rosemary Seasalt sables.
In year 2012, I baked Spritzen Christmas Wreath, a recipe from a reader residing in Europe.

Finally my cute little Reindeer Macarons :D.

As you may have noticed from the video, that this Cranberries and walnut cookie dough are pretty much on the "softer" side.

My first baked (for Eid), I did the spoon thingy the dough to try to make it like a ball.
However, my Cranberries and walnut cookies didn't turn out pretty :( , no compromise on the taste and texture whatsoever.. its just NOT PRETTY!!!

And I hear a voice, echoing... No I am not hallucinating over these cookies :( (that voice ~non other than my number 1 critique : hubby :P)

"how to share and convince others that these are good bake, when all I can see are out of shape, not so exciting, enticing looking little Cranberries and walnut cookies?"

Point taken!!!

Enjoy the bake and enjoy my short video below :D.

Addictive cranberries and walnut cookies


  1. Definitely bake some for the holiday cookie tray! They look seriously yummy and addictive, Lisa.

  2. Yummy and easy! I love these. I actually just made cranberry ginger cookies over the weekend that were awesome. I'm actually not a huge fan of walnuts, do you think pecans would work just as well?

    1. Oh cranberry and ginger sounds awesome too :)

      Definitely you can use pecans, my sister’s original recipe uses cashews but a packet of cashews are so expensive hence walnuts :D

  3. I think its tempting and it looks really good too. You just being humble! If you don't mind, I can polish off for you. haha....
    Blessings, Kristy
