Ingredients

1 c
orange juice (to soak the cranberries in, then saving 1 1/4 tsps. of it later)
1 c
dried cranberries
1 c
butter
3/4 c
sugar
3/4 c
brown sugar
2
eggs
1/2 tsp
vanilla or almond extract or orange extract
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
2-1/4 c
flour
1 c
white chocolate chips
1 c
slivered almonds (optional)

Step-By-Step

1Put the cranberries in a wide and shallow bowl; pour in a bit of the orange juice. Enough so they're surrounded by it, but not drowning.
Cover and place in the refrigerator for an hour or more. Afterwards, place a colander over a bowl and pour the cranberries and orange juice through, putting the cranberries and the orange juice they soaked in aside.
2Beat the butter until light and fluffy.
Add the sugars and beat again.
Add the eggs, vanilla and 1 1/4 tsp. of the orange juice.
Beat until light and fluffy.
3Sift the dry ingredients together, then add to the butter-sugar mixture, a bit at a time, beating until just mixed.
Fold in the cranberries and white chocolate chips and the almonds.
Let chill for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
4Place rounded tablespoonfuls down on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool for a minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
