Cookie Recipe

Many of you have been asking for the cookie recipe that I just posted....so here goes...

CRANBERRY NUT SWIRLS
These are a slightly fussy cookie....but are oh so good!
1/2 c softened butter
3/4 c sugar
1 egg
1 teas vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
1/4 teas baking powder
1/4 teas salt
Cream together butter, sugar, egg and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Combine the dry ingredients ( flour, salt and baking powder) and add to the creamed mixture.
Refrigerate for a least 1 hour.

1/2 cup finely ground cranberries
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
1 T grated orange peel
3 T brown sugar
2 T milk or orange juice ( I use orange juice)
Mix these ingredients together in a small bowl and set aside

On floured surface...roll out dough into a rectangle. Spread the cranberry mixture onto the
dough and roll up tightly. Wrap with wax paper and chill for several hours.
Cut into slices about 1/4" and bake on greased cookie sheet at 375 about 12 minutes.

Glaze

2 cups powdered sugar
2 T melted butter
2 to 3 T orange juice ( add enough so that glaze will drizzle over cookies)

Do not overbake . These cookies freeze well and taste even better after a day or two.
