Day 2 -Cranberry Cookies

Happy Sunday dear sweet friends!  It's time for Day 2 of the Twelve Days of Christmas!!

Since it's Sunday, I have another fun recipe that's going into my Family Favorite Recipe Cookbook to share with you.  Every December, before the Christmas baking begins, we start the month off by making these delicious Cranberry Cookies.  They are a family favorite and I hope they become a favorite of yours too!

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

  • Preheat oven to 375F.

    In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars. Beat in milk, orange juice and egg. Separately, stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, then blend well into the butter mixture.  Stir in the cranberries.  Drop dough onto a cookie sheet and bake for about 15 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes, remove from sheet to continue cooling.
See you tomorrow night for day three!!
 Enjoy and Merry Christmas!!!

Think I will be making these myself only using the dried cranberries instead of the fresh.
