Cranberry, Orange, and White Chocolate Cookies

     Outstandingly delicious Cookies that are sure to please anyone.  I think they make a delicious cookie to serve at Holidays.  I can picture them being served at a fancy English Tea.  They aren’t overly sweet, the fresh Cranberries, Orange Zest, and White Chocolate Chips add a subtle background flavor without overpowering the Cookies. 

     I had some Cranberries in my freezer which I rinsed, put in a small food chopper, and then popped them in the toaster oven for a few minutes.  I wanted to make sure they would cook because 12 ½ minutes in the oven might not have done it.  If you decide to use them without cooking, let me know how it turned out. 

INGREDIENTS:  Yields 40 cookies

2 sticks Butter, room temp

½ cup Sugar

1 Egg Yolk (cook the white for your dog)

1 ½ tsp Vanilla

1 tsp Orange Zest, finely grated for a subtle flavor (Add more if you want it stronger)

2 dashes Salt

2 cups AP Flour

¾ cup Cranberries, chopped

1 cup White Chocolate Chips (Semi-Sweet would be delicious also)

PREPARATION:

     Preheat oven to 375° F.  These cookies are not meant to brown on the bottoms.  I find that Stoneware, or a baking sheet with a silicone sheet is best.

     In mixer bowl, cream Butter for 2 minutes on medium speed.  Add Sugar and beat until light and fluffy.

     Add Egg Yolk, Salt, Vanilla, and Orange Zest.  Beat until combined.  Add Flour and beat until well incorporated, but not over mixed.  Add Cranberries and Chocolate Chips.  Beat or stir in.

     With a 1” Cookie scoop, drop dough onto prepared baking sheet.  They don’t spread much, so about 1 ½” in between is fine.  Bake for 12 ½ to 13 minutes.
