Some cosmetic changes in preparation for larger site changes in the works.
Wigs, maybe this is it--the provenance is Gail's Swap.

(I found the recipe on GardenWeb; the spelling of "Jen" is different, but since it's from the Swap, the chances seem pretty high that it's the recipe you were looking for.) I love a good research challenge. ;)
Cranberry Lemon Cookies - Jenn
A wonderful cookie I discovered at Gail's Recipe Swap. They freeze well, but thaw them before adding icing. I posted this last year and got quite a few comments from people who said everyone loved them.
* 1/2 C butter
* 1/2 C sugar
* 1/3 C brown sugar
* 1/2 tsp. lemon zest
* 1 egg
* 2 tsp. vanilla
* 1 C flour
* 1 tsp. baking powder
* 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
* 1-1/2 C chopped pecans (I use walnuts)
* 1-1/2 C chopped fresh cranberries
Cream butter, sugars, and lemon zest. Beat in egg and vanilla.
Combine flour, baking powder and cinnamon. Gradually beat into butter mixture. Stir in nuts and cranberries.
Drop by teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350F for 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Let cool slightly before removing to cooling racks. Frost when cool.
ICING: Whisk together 1 C confectioner's sugar, 2 Tbsp milk, and 1/4 tsp. lemon zest.
