Cranberry-Orange Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

This is my absolute favorite holiday cookie. I get so sick of chocolate-this and chocolate-that (I can barely believe the words are coming out of my mouth either); this cookie is a nice little vacation from chocolate chip. I baked about 10 dozen of these over the holidays, and I'm still not tired of them!

Cranberry-Orange Cookies with White-Chocolate Chips

  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t. orange extract
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/4 t. salt
  • 3/4 t. baking soda
  • 1 heaping cup dried cranberries
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Cream the butter and sugars together until fluffy- add egg and the extracts.
  3. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt until well-combined.
  4. Fold in the chips and cranberries until evenly distributed.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoon (or roll into balls for a more uniform look) onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  6. Bake for 8-10 minutes; the edges should be barely golden and the cookie will look slightly underdone. Cool on the baking sheet for three minutes, then allow to cool completely on a wire-rack.
