Orange Cookies with Cranberries and White Chocolate

Whenever I am asked about the most popular cookie mix from my old product line (story here), the answer is easy....this one!

These cookies only sold a few months out of the year but outsold all of the cookies we sold year round.  I've adjusted the ingredients required to use items one can find on any grocery store shelf.  They are great for packaging as a dry mix and giving as a gift!

1 1/2 cups sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup old fashioned oats
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon orange flavored drink mix, sugar free
{all of the above ingredients can be placed in a large baggie to make a quick to use mix or giftable item}

3/4 cup dried cranberries (like craisins)
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
{if making a dry mix, package these separately and add them to the dry blend mentioned above}
2 eggs
2 sticks butter, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and prepare a cookie / baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. 
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs with the butter until creamy and then slowly add the 7 powdered ingredients (sugar, flour, oats, baking powder, baking soda, salt and orange flavor).  
  3. Beat on a low speed until a stiff dough forms.  Stir in the cranberries and white chocolate chips. 
  4. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheet.  
  5. Bake 10 minutes o until the edges are just starting to brown.  The centers will still be light colored and soft.  Let cool on the pan for 5 minutes before moving to a wired cooling rack.  

Gifting Idea:
Use the tips in the ingredients list to bag this recipe as a gourmet cookie mix.  Tie instructions for making the cookies onto the cookie mix with a decorative bow, or put the mix into a cookie jar and tie the recipe to the jar.  

Tami's Tip:
Fill the freezer with ready to bake cookies!  Make the dough as directed in the recipe above, stopping short of baking them.  Instead, fill a baking sheet with dough balls, freeze them until firm and then fill a gallon freezer bag with dough balls that can be baked as desired.
