If you are anything like me, then most of the cookies you made for the holidays have already been eaten by your family and you are now wondering what you will offer your guests. Time to whip up another batch of cookies! I honestly need to hide these orange, cranberry and chocolate chip cookies from my husband or he will eat them all in one day. The hint of orange is subtle, but works perfectly with the cranberries and chocolate. They are a great addition to any cookie platter.
Orange, Cranberry and Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup white sugar
2-3 tsp orange zest
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup mini chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together for about 2 minutes or until well combined. Next beat in egg and orange zest. Slowly add the flour mixture until fully incorporated. Finally, add the chocolate chips and cranberries.
Drop the dough onto a cookie sheet into tablespoon sized balls. Bake for 9 – 12 minutes.
Don’t forget to save some for your guests!
