Cranberry Cookies with Brown Butter Glaze

These cookies have been a favorite here for a long time. I have never given out the recipe hoping at some point to figure out how to make them in large quantities. I have lost count of the number of times I have been asked for the recipe and now, this Christmas, I am posting it as a gift to my friends and guests. I hope that you have as much success and enjoyment from these cookies as we have had. They are truly incredible and they freeze beautifully. My children would tell you that they taste just amazing straight from the freezer.
