Ingredients:
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup vegetable shortening, I used the white Crisco
3/4 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 teaspoons grated orange zest
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries, I used Craisins
1 bag of white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a separate bowl, combine and whisk dry ingredients. Set aside.
I had planned on baking cranberry and white chocolate chip cookies for Christmas. This recipe was inspired by my friend Nick, who was telling me about an orange cranberry cocktail. I thought orange (!)…what a great edition to my upcoming cookies. I thought of using white chocolate chips because my silly friend Lisa does not like chocolate chips. Lisa and Nick, thank you for being my inspiration on these delicious cookies. I must say, these cookies remind me of a certain bliss bar sold at a popular coffee place.
Blend together vegetable shortening and sugars. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix to combine. Lastly, add orange zest, Craisens and white chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoons and bake 8-10 minutes. Cool cookies completely and store in an airtight container. Enjoy!
