More Cookies From Work...

Here are a couple more work products for you to drool over. Both recipes half easily if you want to make them in a smaller quantity. Both taste amazing. The Cranberry Orange ones are a variation of the chocolate chip cookie recipe posted here. They don't require patting down at all since they'll spread during baking, but the Dad's Cookies will require a bit of squishing with a fork since the dough is much denser.

Cranberry Orange Cookies

1 lb butter (2 cups)
2 cups sugar
1 cup packed brown sugar
4 cups flour
3 eggs
1/4 cup orange juice
4 tsp orange extract (if you don't have this or don't want to invest, I'd just substitute with an equal amount of either orange zest or more orange juice)
2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp salt
2 cups dried cranberries

Bake at 350F for 10 - 12 minutes.

Dad's Cookies

1 lb butter (2 cups)
4 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
1 bag (200g) coconut
3 cups oatmeal
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp vanilla
2 pinches salt
1 - 2 cups raisins

Bake at 350F for 15 or so minutes. These spread and rise quite a bit so make sure you give them their space on the cookie sheets.

Those cookies sound fantastic! My guys don't care for cranberries, so I guess I won't be baking them. I don't need to be eating a whole batch of cookies by myself.
