Ingredients:
1/2 c. butter
1 c. white sugar
1 egg
grated zest of 1 orange (2-3 tsp.)
1 tsp. vanilla
1-1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 pkg. white chocolate chips

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a small bowl. Set aside.
 
Beat butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the egg, orange zest, and vanilla. Stir the dry ingredients into the butter mixture until combined. Mix in chocolate chips and dried cranberries if using.
 
Roll into balls. Use your fingers to flatten onto a non-stick baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on the pan for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. When cool, store in an airtight container for up to 5 days. Will freeze well.
