I love chocolate and orange together. I also love dried cranberries, so this soft version of a chocolate chip cookie is one of my favorites to bake at the holidays. I have to admit – the kids ask me to bake some without the cranberries. I just replace them with more chips!
Chocolate Cranberry Orange Drops:
2/3 cup butter (at cool room temperature) ½ tsp. baking powder
¾ cup sugar ½ tsp. baking soda
1 egg ½ tsp. salt
½ cup orange juice 2 cups flour
2 Tbsp. grated orange rind ½ cup chocolate chips
½ cup dried cranberries
Using a mixer set at medium, cream butter and sugar for 3 minutes. Mix in egg. Stir in orange juice and rind. Blend in baking powder, baking soda, salt and flour. Add chocolate chips and dried cranberries and combine. Chill dough for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Drop rounded teaspoonfuls of dough about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, or until delicately browned at edges. Let cool 2 minutes on baking sheet, then cool completely on rack.
Oh. I put the recipe in the file sharing folder on the left side of the Overview page to make it easier to print the recipe. :-)
I'll bet those are delicious! Chocolate and orange is one of my favorite combinations.
