I used honey instead of syrup, and since I didn't have orange juice, I used orange extract (1 tsp), vanilla (1 tsp), and two extra tsp of water.  I also used dried cranberries instead of fresh, and threw in maybe 1/4 cup of sugar based on a suggestion in another review.  I must have made mine a little larger than the poster did, because I only ended up with about 3 dozen.  I ended up baking them for about 15 minutes before they browned a bit (probably because they were bigger/thicker than intended).  I thought they were very good, as did my vegetarian housemate and my omni housemate (who is kind of a picky eater).  Since there was no picture posted, I put up a photo of my version.  Your mileage may vary.  Thanks for the recipe! ;)b


Oh and It doesn't say how much salt to put in so I guessed 1/2 teaspoon...worked fine :)


;)b it is the right time of season for these cookies :) I just happend to have fresh oranges and cranberries on hand so I decided to give them a try. Pretty good I must say, although I might suggest adding a bit of sugar :) other than that delish!
