I got a precious new kitten; his name is Francis.
It broke my heart taking him away from his family, so I knew I had to make him feel extra special when he came home with me…
…which is why I made him a house!!
To find instructions on how to make the house, click here.
I also made him some milk and cookies… but he only liked the milk. 😉
These cookies are amazing though!! Seriously good. Maybe even my new favorite… the different flavors all go together so well. I was looking for a “one bowl” recipe and these are what I found. So they’re obviously easy, since they’re one bowl, but the taste is out of this world!!
One Bowl Cranberry-White Chocolate Orange Cookies
King Arthur Flour
Yield: about 4 ½ dozen cookies.
1 cup (2 sticks, 8 ounces) unsalted butter, very soft
1 cup (7 ½ ounces) packed brown sugar
¾ cup (5 ¼ ounces) granulated sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/8 teaspoon orange oil (4 to 5 drops) (can substitute with almond!)
1 large egg
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 ¾ cups (11 5/8 ounces) All-Purpose Flour
1 ½ cups (9 ounces) white chocolate chips
1 ½ cups (5 ¼ ounces) dried cranberries
1 cup (3 ¾ ounces) chopped pecans or walnuts
Place the very soft butter in a medium-large mixing bowl. Add the sugars, salt, vanilla, and orange oil, and stir well. Add the egg and stir until well blended. Add the baking soda and flour, mixing until blended. Stir in the chips, cranberries, and nuts.
Scoop rounded tablespoons of dough onto light-colored baking sheets. Flatten into disks, using gentle pressure from your fingers.
Bake the cookies in a preheated 375°F oven for 10-12 minutes, until the bottoms and edges are lightly browned; the tops shouldn’t brown, they should still be slightly gooey. Remove the cookies from the oven, let them rest on the pan for 5 minutes, then slide them onto a rack to cool completely.
