Units Scale


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together butter, shortening, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, orange zest, vanilla and orange extract. Blend in the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Gently stir in cranberries until just combined.
  3. In a small bowl, mix together 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon. Shape dough by rounded spoonfuls into balls (I use a #50 cookie scoop) and roll in cinnamon sugar mixture. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake 8 to 10 minutes, or until set but not too hard. Using a spatula, immediately remove cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!
