Cranberry Drops are moist and chewy holiday cookies crammed with cranberries, spiced with cinnamon and include the optional crunch of walnuts.
1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar; firmly packed
1/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons orange juice
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chopped walnuts
2-1/2 cups chopped cranberries
Position the rack in the middle of the oven. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper. Lightly coat the paper with butter flavored cooking spray.
In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, brown sugar substitute, and walnuts.
In a large measuring cup, beat together egg, egg white, orange juice, and oil. Mix well. Add to flour-fruit mixture and stir with a wooden spoon until mixture is thoroughly mixed and evenly moistened.
Spoon into prepared pan and press down evenly. Bake for 25 minutes, until top is golden and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in the pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Using a sharp knife, cut into 25 squares. Cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
