Ingredients

For the orange sugar

  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1 Teaspoon grated orange zest

For the cookie

  • 1 Cup sugar
  • 3/4 Cups butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 Teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 Cup sweetened, dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1/2 Cup chopped macadamia nuts
  • 1 Tablespoon grated orange zest

Directions

For the orange sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all orange sugar ingredients in small bowl; stir until well mixed. Set aside.

For the cookie

Combine 1 cup sugar, butter, and egg in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour, baking powder, and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Add all remaining ingredients. Continue beating just until mixed.

Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in orange sugar. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass to 1 1/2-inch circles.

Bake 7-11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. (Do not overbake.) Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.

Cranberry Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Cranberry Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
