Holiday Recipes

Our first recipe comes from reader Tina Bos.

Grandchildren's Favorite Cookies

'This is a favorite cookie given approval by my Grandchildren.'


Dip Topping: combine 1/3 cup of white sugar with 1 teaspoon fresh grated orange zest. Set aside to roll dough balls in later.

Set oven to 350 degrees

1 cup of white sugar

3/4 cup softened butter

1 egg

Combine in a large bowl until creamy and well mixed.

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Combine these dry ingredients and add to butter, sugar, egg mixture

Chop 1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries and 1/2 cup pecans. Add to the dough, then add 1 tablespoon of grated orange zest. Mix well, the dough will be very stiff.

Roll 1 inch balls, roll them into the sugar orange dip topping. Place on non-greased cookie sheet.

Flatten the balls with the bottom of a small glass or custard dish.

Bake 350 degrees for 10 to12 minutes. Let sit for 1 minute before removing cookies to a rack.

Makes about 31/2 dozen. They freeze well.

Note: do not forget to flatten the balls, they do not make a great cookie if you forget!

Thanks Tina for sharing this wonderful recipe!
