Last week we had a few days of cooler weather to usher in the Fall season. To celebrate, I wanted to savor the flavors of Fall with some cranberry and orange. I ended up making some Cranberry Orange Chocolate Chip Cookies. For the month of October, one of the freebie essential oils is Orange (also Cinnamon Bark and Nutmeg) so I couldn’t wait to try the Orange Essential Oil in a cookie recipe. I love to use therapeutic grade essential oils as a low carb, all natural food flavoring. The unsweetened dried cranberries, give the cookies just a touch of tartness which pairs nicely with the chocolate chips.
