Cranberry Orange Cookies.

These cookies have been my favorite treat for years! I have a strong obsession with the combination of orange and cranberry that I discovered in College and I honestly can’t get enough. Since moving into my new apartment, I don’t have all the baking ingredients and am not the biggest baker but wanted a sweet treat yesterday and decided it was worth a trip to the store.

These cookies are definitely an indulgent but if you do have the option to substitute the flour for almond flour and sugar for stevia.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1 Orange peel (grated)

Directions:

  1.  Preheat over to 350 degrees
  2. Combine sugar, butter, and egg in a bowl and mix until creamy.
  3. Mix in flour, baking powder, and baking soda. If content is too dry, add a small amount of melted butter. The mixture might be crumbly, but should be able to roll into small balls.
  4. Stir in cranberries and orange peel.
  5. Shape cookies into one inch balls and place on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes until edges start to turn slightly dark brown. Don’t over bake.
  7. Cool for 1 minute.
  8. Enjoy!
