Easy Homemade Orange Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These Orange Cranberry White Chocolate Chip cookies were SO easy to make and incredibly delicious! I was inspired by a recipe I found on Pinterest, but tweaked it to make it my own.

What you'll need:
1 Medium to Large Orange
1/2 Cup of Butter
3/4 Cup of Sugar
1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
1/8 Teaspoon of Baking Powder
1/2 Teaspoon of Salt
1 Large Egg
1 1/2 Cups of All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 Cups of Dried Cranberries
(I used about 2/3 of the bag pictured above)
1 - 1 1/2 Cups of White Chocolate Chips 
(I used half the bag pictured above)

*Use as much or as little of the orange zest, cranberries, and chocolate chips as you prefer!

1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
................................................................
2. Finely grate the orange peel to the amount of orange zest you want in your cookies:  more orange zest = more orange flavor.
 ...............................................................
3. Mix the butter, sugar, orange zest, vanilla extract, baking powder and salt in a large bowl.
..............................................................
3. Add the egg to the combination and mix again.
................................................................
4. Add the flour and mix together.
...............................................................
5. Add the cranberries and white chocolate chips, then stir to combine.
...............................................................
6. Portion on a cookie sheet and place on the top rack of the oven. Bake for 8 to 9 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE. 

*From my experience:
- Do not bake the cookies on the bottom rack. I originally baked 2 racks together and the cookies on the bottom resulted in a burnt bottom. 
-  However, some people enjoyed the burnt bottom because it had a "caramelized" bottom. So it's up to you! lol


Enjoy!
