Meet the "Scookie"
Last night I was trying to multitask by getting Sadie to fall asleep in the Ergo whilst simultaneously whipping up a batch of cranberry orange scones. As
distraction fate would have it, I goofed up on the recipe and came out with something that wasn't very scone-ish. I thought I would fudge, and go for drop scones--but they actually came out better--lighter, and fluffier and mmmmm.... delish. So here is a recipe for cranberry orange scookies. I made them with Nome cranberries, which are actually lingonberries--so tangy and tart and wonderful!
preheat oven to 375.
In a large mixing bowl combine:
2 cups flour
1/2 c. brown sugar
zest of one orange
1 c. frozen cranberries
1T. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
Whip together and add to dry ingredients:
1/4 c. oil
3/4 c. milk
Drop by generous spoonfuls onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 20 minutes.
I topped these off with a glaze made from the juice of the zested orange, a dash of vanilla, and some powdered sugar, but they would be good without too.
