Frosted Cranberry Sugar Cookie Recipe


  • 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the frosting-

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • ½ tsp vanilla
  • 2 tbsp milk

For cranberry topping-

  • ½ cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped 
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together all purpose flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, mix together butter and sugar 1-2 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add vanilla and egg, mix to combine.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients to the wet, mixing until just combined.
  • Roll the cookie dough into 1 inch balls and place onto the parchment paper.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes, until the cookies are turning golden on the bottom.
  • Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, vanilla, and milk.
  • After making your frosting add your chopped cranberries and tablespoons of sugar together so that the cranberries are coated.
  • Once the cookies have cooled, spoon a small amount of the frosting onto your cookie, then top with a few pieces of chopped sugared cranberries.
  • Allow cookies to sit so the frosting can harden. Enjoy, or store in the refrigerator.
