Yesterday, while at a Thanksgiving workshop at Heavenly Hydrangeas, Susan Poneman served these incredible cookies. The flavors are delicious and the texture is that perfect chewiness!
Cranberry Coconut Chews
1 1/2 cups (3/4 lb.) butter or margarine, at room temperature
2 cups sugar
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked dried coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugar until pale in color.
Add egg, orange peel, and vanilla, mix until combined.
Slowly mix in dry ingredients just until incorporated. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place on baking pan with parchment paper. Bake for about 10-15 minutes, until edges are golden.
