Orange biscuits with cranberries

These cookies are not only nicely colored but also beautifully aromatic, full of orange flavor. Thanks to the cranberries, they are also healthy. Cranberries are a tasty source of vitamins B, C and E and are beneficial for our immune system. Simply a healthy treat. A 100ml cup is all you need to measure.


  • 1 cup butter (100g) in room temperature
  • 2 cups flour (200g)
  • 1 cup icing sugar
  • 1 cup cornstarch
  • Peel of 1 large orange
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups dried cranberries
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt


  • Beat the butter with the icing sugar.
  • Add flour, starch, eggs, salt, baking powder and orange zest (set aside 1 tsp for later).
  • Knead with your hands until you have an elastic, non-sticky dough. Roll the dough into a rectangle.
  • Afterwards chop the cranberries. Divide 2/3 of the cranberries over the surface of the dough. Then roll up the dough and roll it out into a roll.
  • Place the remaining orange zest on the work surface and roll the dough a few more times over the zest, allowing this to sink into the dough.
  • Cut the dough into small circles and place them on the baking sheet, spaced apart.
  • Divide the remaining cranberries over the surface of the biscuits.
  • Bake at 180C approx. 10 minutes until they are golden brown.
  • When cooled down, sprinkle with icing sugar.
