My wife tried these out this year during her annual Christmas cookie baking marathon and let me tell you, they are awesome! Here's the recipe:

Ingredients
For the cookies:
  • 3/4 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

 

For the rolling sugar:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon orange zest

 

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Using an electric mixer, mix butter and 1 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Add to butter mixture and mix until just combined. Fold in cranberries and 1 tablespoon orange zest. Chill dough while you make orange sugar.
  4. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon orange zest. Use your fingers to rub the 2 together until everything is combined and mixture is fragrant.
  5. Shape dough into 1 inch balls and roll in orange sugar. Place on baking sheet and flatten slightly.
  6. Bake 10 to 13 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool on wire racks.
