Cranberry, Orange & Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe on Slashfood (my new favorite site!), and the combination sounded like so much win that I couldn't not make them. Plus, I already had cranberries for my Eggnog Poundcake (which is also made of win and delicious; check that recipe out, too. Or perhaps I'll repost it with pictures? I tried a diff'rent combo of fruits and liquors this time.). I made them, and they were all that the recipe promised: "bright, buttery, and sweet." And fucking yum! They're definitely staying in my repertoire of Christmas cookies. Except the yield was more like thirty-six cookies than forty-eight. I didn't have parchment paper, but they were fine on my excellent non-stick cookie sheets.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg
zest of one orange (about 2-3 tsp)
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

1. Preheat oven to 350F and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and the sugar, beating with an electric mixer until light. Beat in egg and orange zest. With the mixer on low speed, gradually add in the flour mixture, stirring only until just combined. Stir in the cranberries and chocolate chips.

3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls (about 1 1/4-inch balls) onto prepared cookie sheets and bake for 9-12 minutes, until edges are very lightly browned. Cool for 3-4 minutes on baking sheet then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Makes about 4 dozen.
