Ingredients

1/2 c
softened butter
3/4 c
granulated sugar
1 large
egg
1 tsp
vanilla extract
1 1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/4 tsp
baking powder

1/2 c
fresh cranberries, finely chopped
1/2 c
finely chopped walnuts (or pecans)
1 Tbsp

3 Tbsp

2 tsp

Step-By-Step

1In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, sugar, egg and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy, scraping the bowl occasionally.

2Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture until thoroughly combined. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

3In a small bowl, combine cranberries, walnuts and orange peel; set aside.

4On a lightly floured surface, roll dough into a 10-inch square.

5Combine brown sugar and milk; spread over the dough then sprinkle with the cranberry mixture, leaving about a 1/2-inch edge at both ends of the dough.

6Roll up tightly, jelly-roll style. Wrap with waxed paper; chill several hours or overnight.

7Pre-heat oven to 375F. Coat cookie sheet with non-stick cooking spray, or grease with shortening. Cut roll into 1/4-inch slices and place on cookie sheet. Bake for 14-15 minutes, or until edges are light brown.

8Cool on wire rack.
