Cranberry Yogurt Cookies

Yield: makes about 3 dozen cookies

Ingredients

2 cups all purpose flour
1 & 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 & 1/4 cup sugar
1 container (6 ounces) plain Greek yogurt
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 navel orange, zested
1 teaspoon fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh cranberries
turbinado sugar for sprinkling (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Grease a large baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Whisk together and set aside.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the sugar, yogurt, egg, orange zest and juice, and vanilla until fully combined. Add the flour mixture to the yogurt mixture and whisk until little to no lumps remain. Gently fold in the cranberries.
  4. Drop tablespoon sized dollops of batter about 1 inch apart on to the baking sheet. Sprinkle the tops of each cookie with a small amount of turbinado sugar, if desired.
  5. Bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the edges barely begin to brown. Carefully transfer cookies onto a cooling rack and allow to slightly cool before serving.

Notes

Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for 2-3 days and are best if refreshed in a warmed oven for a few minutes before serving.

    I was not hungry. But after looking at your cranberry cookies with Greek yogurt (oh my goodness!), I am craving a cookie! Okay a cranberry yogurt cookie to be precise….Seriously, I love the healthy touches of orange and cranberry and my favorite Greek yogurt =)

    Right now I am into cranberry everything so I would probably make cranberry/pistachio biscotti from Martha Stewart’s site – a recipe fro a long time ago, which belonged to John the baker.
