    • 250g butter
    • 3/4 cup white sugar
    • 3/4 cup brown sugar, packed

    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup chopped pecans
    • 1 cup rolled oats
    • 1 cup dried cranberries

    • 1 tablespoon butter

    Preparation:25min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Preheat an oven to 190 degrees C. Sift the flour, bicarb soda and salt together in a bowl.
    2. In a large bowl, beat together the butter, white and brown sugars and vanilla essence with an electric mixer until the mixture is creamy and well blended.
    3. Beat in eggs one at a time then gradually beat in the flour just until the mixture makes a soft dough. Stir in the pecans, rolled oats and cranberries then drop by heaping spoonfuls onto ungreased baking trays.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until the biscuits are set and the edges are slightly brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the biscuits cool for 1 minute on baking trays before removing to wire racks to finish cooling. Glaze biscuits while still a little warm.
    5. To make the glaze:

    6. Place the icing sugar and orange juice in a microwave-safe bowl and stir to dissolve the sugar. Stir in the orange zest and butter then microwave on medium power until the butter melts and the mixture is warm, about 30 seconds. Stir the warm glaze until smooth and drizzle over biscuits.

    I could not keep these in the house and not expect them to disappear. The only thing I changed was I added spices 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of ginger and 1/2 tsp of cloves it really gives it that winter/ holiday kick!  -  17 Dec 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    These cookies are so far beyond delicious. Followed the recipe exactly, except for the proportions of the glaze. I used 2/3 c. powdered sugar with just enough orange juice to make it into a thick liquid, then added the orange peel. Butter is unnecessary, and this was just the right amount for the number of cookies.  -  24 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
