Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies

I've been making these cookies for years, and they are one of my favorites. They're not necessarily Christmas cookies either, but the cranberries make them look so festive that I usually do reserve them for this time of year. However, I'm starting to accumulate cranberries like bananas, so I might have to make them more often in the months ahead!

Start by creaming together the butter and brown and white sugars in a large mixing bowl.

Add the milk, egg and orange juice

and beat until combined. Mix in the flour,

baking soda, baking powder and salt, then fold in the cranberries

and white chips.

You'll see that my batter is quite pink - that's because I chopped the cranberries quite finely. If you chop them more coarsely, your batter will stay white with nice red cranberry pieces for accent!

Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet,

and bake for 10 to 15 minutes. Let cool on the sheet for about 2 minutes, then remove to a wire rack.
