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)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Put 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.
2
Beat 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.
3
Sift 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.
4
Place 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.
