Orange Sugar

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest



1 cup sugar

3/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened

1 large Land O Lakes® Egg

1 teaspoon freshly grated orange zest

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Heat oven to 350°F.

  2. STEP 2

    Combine all orange sugar ingredients in bowl; stir until well mixed. Set aside.

  3. STEP 3

    Combine 1 cup sugar and butter in large bowl; beat at medium speed until creamy. Add egg and 1 teaspoon orange zest; mix until combined. Add flour, baking powder and baking soda; beat at low speed until well mixed. Add cranberries. Continue beating just until mixed.

  4. STEP 4

    Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll balls in orange sugar. Place, 2 inches apart, onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass to 1 1/2-inch circles.

  5. STEP 5

    Bake 8-10 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to cooling rack.

Tip #1

- To prevent hands from getting too sugary, shape dough into enough balls to fill one cookie sheet, then roll balls in orange sugar.
