1 cup salted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 tsp ground cardamom
1 tsp finely grated orange zest
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup finely chopped white chocolate
1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
- Beat butter with sugar and cardamom until fluffy. Beat in egg and orange zest. In a separate bowl, stir flour with baking powder and salt. Gradually beat flour mixture into butter mixture. Stir in chocolate and cranberries.
- Divide dough into quarters. Roll each portion into a 6 inch log about 1 1/2 inches wide. Wrap tightly and chill until firm, about 3 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375F. Slice logs about 1/4 inch thick and arrange on parchment paper lined baking sheets. Bake for 10 minutes or until bottoms are golden. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.
- Garnish the cookies with additional melted white or dark chocolate.
