  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon orange rind
  • 12 ounces (1½ cups) semi-sweet chocolate chips (I use 2 cups)
  • 2 cups cranberries fresh or frozen ( I use 3 cups)


  • Preheat the oven to 375º.
  • Spray or grease cookie sheet pans or use parchment paper.
  • With a mixer on medium speed, beat the butter, sugar, and light brown sugar until fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat it well.
  • On low speed, mix in the flour and baking soda until a dough is formed.
  • On low speed, add the chocolate chips, cranberries, and orange rind for just a few seconds. Do not over beat or the dough will turn pink!
  • Use a # 40-size cookie scoop (2 tablespoons) to put round balls of dough onto the prepared cookie sheets, keeping them two inches apart.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until lightly browned on the edges.
  • Place the cookie sheets on a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes then remove the cookies to the wire rack to finish cooling. You may have wipe down the cookie spatula a few times since the cranberries sometimes make the edges of the cookie spatula sticky.
  • Store the cookies covered at room temperature.


VARIATIONS:  *  Use any chocolate chips you like!     * You can add some chopped nuts, raisins, or other dried fruit!
