Cranberry Orange Crinkle Cookies

Orange Cranberry Crinkle Cookies: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

When I decided to make these I had no idea of what a crinkle cookie was. I made them because they had cranberries in them. After trying them I discovered that the top is slightly crunchy, but the middle is still a little soft. A very yummy cookie.

Cranberry Orange Crinkle Cookies
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg
zest of 1 navel orange
1 tablespoon fresh squeezed orange juice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup chopped fresh cranberries
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350ยบ F. Grease several cookie sheets and set aside.

In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla, egg, orange zest and orange juice.

In a medium bowl combine the baking powder, baking soda and flour. Add to the wet ingredients and mix just until combined. Stir in the chopped cranberries. Scoop out a tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Roll the ball in the powdered sugar and place on prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 7-11 minutes or until the bottoms just barley start to brown and the tops look matte (not melty or shiny). Cool cookies on baking sheet for about 3 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.


Yields: approximately 2 dozen cookies
