Dak's Favorite Fresh Cranberry Orange Cookies

Dak's Favorite Fresh Cranberry Orange Cookies


1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
1 c. granulated sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp grated orange zest
juice of 1/2 orange
1 tsp vanilla
1 c. chopped fresh cranberries


-Preheat oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment.
-In medium bowl combine flour, baking soda, salt, and whisk; set aside.
-In bowl of stand mixer, combine butter and sugars and beat until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
-Add yolk and beat until fully incorporated.
-Add zest and vanilla and beat until fully incorporated.
-Turn mixer to low speed and beat until just incorporated.
-Remove bowl from mixer, stir in cranberries, and place 1 Tbsp rounds of dough onto cookie sheets.
-Place cookies in the oven and bake, switching baking sheet positions half way through baking time, for 12-14 minutes (they should not brown)
-Remove from oven and let cool on pans completely, about 10-15 minutes.

Then enjoy with a glass of milk ~~ or in my case Almond Milk.
And in this house if you want any more than the initial one or two you must take them out and hide them, because when Dak finds them its all over ~~ no more cookies for you =)
Because after all, they are his fav's!!!
