Notes

I mixed in 1 cup of dried cranberries, 3 tablespoons of dried orange peel (found in the baking aisle with the spices or you can use 1 tablespoon of fresh orange zest) and 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon. Once the cookies were baked, I drizzled them with melted white chocolate for the perfect finishing touch.
