This recipe is the perfect combination of sweet and slightly tart!

Cranberry Cookies with Browned Butter Glaze


1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
2 tablespoons orange juice
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup 2% milk
2-1/2 cups coarsely chopped fresh cranberries
1 cup white baking chips
1 cup chopped walnuts


1/3 cup butter, cubed
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 to 4 tablespoons of water


~Preheat oven to 375°.

~In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and orange juice. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk. Stir in cranberries, baking chips, and pecans.

~Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls one inch apart onto greased baking sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes (or until light brown). Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.

~For glaze, in a small heavy saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Heat five to seven minutes or until golden brown, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in confectioners’ sugar, vanilla, and enough water to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cookies. Let stand until set.
