Get ready people, you're about to have a new favorite cookie.
Bold claim, I know- but just make these and see if you can disagree!
What you'll need to make it happen:
2 1/4 cups flour // 1/2 teaspoon salt // 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 sticks butter // 1 cup granulated sugar // 1/2 cup brown sugar // 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg // 1 tablespoon orange zest // 5 tablespoons orange juice // 2 cups dried cranberries
How to make it happen:
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Step 2: In a bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda- set aside
Step 3: Cream together butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Mix until well combined
Step 4: Add egg, vanilla extract, orange juice, orange zest, and beat well.
Step 5: Mix in half of the dry mixture- mix well, then mix in the second half.
Step 6: Stir in cranberries until well distributed.
Step 7: Drop heaping tablespoons onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until very light brown- don't overbake or they'll get hard!!
Step 8: Enjoy the heck out of them!
Now if you're thinking "wait laura-you've made fruit cookies before"- then I'd love to give you a big hug for having such a good memory and paying such close attention to the blog! Yes, I've shared some Cranberry Oatmeal Cookies and some Orange Meltaway Cookies. These cookies just combine those two magical worlds into one. A little crunchy, a little chewy- a little sweet, a little tart.
What's your favorite cookie?
I'm clearly partial to these right now- but I'm easily swayed!
