Orange Cranberry Cookies

To me, summertime is all about FRESH and LIGHT, and there's nothing that says "Summer" like FRESH ORANGES! And what goes perfect with ORANGES? CRANBERRIES of course! These cookies are super MOIST and has "SUMMER" written all over them!

Ingredients: (48 cookies)

2 c all purpose flour
1½ tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¾ c butter (1½ sticks), room temperature
1 c white sugar
1 large egg
zest of one large orange (about 1 Tbsp)
¾ c dried cranberries


1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar, beating with an electric mixer until light. Beat in egg and orange zest. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring only until just combined. Stir in the cranberries.

4. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/4-inch balls) onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for 9-12 minutes, until edges are very lightly browned. Cool for 3-4 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
