Cran-Orange Cookies

Ingredients:

For Cookies:

3/4 cup Harvest Blood Orange Olive Oil

1 cup white sugar

1 egg

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup dried cranberries, roughly chopped

1 Tbs orange zest

For Rolling Sugar:

1/2 cup white sugar

1 Tbs orange zest

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Using electric mixer, mix oil and 1 cup sugar in a medium bowl until light and fluffy. Add egg and stir to combine. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add oil mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in cranberries and 1 Tbs orange zest; cover and refrigerate 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, make rolling sugar: In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 Tbs orange zest. Use your fingers to rub the two together until mixture is combined and fragrant.

Shape cookie dough into 1-inch balls and roll in orange sugar. Place on prepared baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake 10-13 minutes, until lightly golden brown. Cool on a rack before serving.
