|Don’t ask about that thing in my daughter’s mouth.
I swear, we were so close to getting rid of it, and now she constantly has it!
What cookies are you planning on making for Christmas this year?
Cranberry Orange Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
3/4 cup butter
2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 TBSP orange zest
1/3 cup sugar
1 tsp orange zest
Preheat oven to 350.
In a small bowl, combine 1/3 cup of sugar and 1 tsp orange zest. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.
In a large bowl beat the remaining sugar, butter and egg until creamy.
Slowly add in the dry ingredients, until just barely combined.
Add in the cranberries and orange zest and mix.
Shape the dough into 1″ balls, roll in the orange-sugar, and place on cookie sheet.
Use a glass to just barely flatten.
Bake 7-11 minutes, until just barely done.
Remove the cookie sheet from the oven and allow the cookies to sit on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before removing them – this allow them to be properly baked without getting too dark.
