Step 1

Whisk the flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl. Set aside. In a large bowl, whisk the butter and sugars together until smooth. Whisk in the egg and yolk, then blend in the vanilla extract. Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon until cookie dough comes together. Stir in the white chocolate chips, dried cranberries and orange zest. The dough will be very soft.

Step 2

Cover and refrigerate dough for at least 3 hours, or up to 4 days. (If chilling longer than a few hours, allow dough to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes, to soften.)

Step 3

Preheat oven to 325°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside. Roll dough into balls, using 2 scant tablespoons of dough. Place balls 3 inches apart on the baking sheets. Bake for 12 to 13 minutes, or until lightly browned on the sides and centers still appear soft. Remove from the oven. Cool 5 minutes, then transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely Makes about 2 dozen cookies.

Step 4

Cookies will be soft and chewy.

My new favorite cookie! I thought the prep was a novel way to do things - and I love that you don't have to dirty up the Kitchen Aid mixer!!! I made these for a ladies get-together and didn't catch that the dough needed to be refrigerated for hours. I was only able to give it 30 minutes in the fridge and used a cookie scoop to form the cookies. They turned out beautifully! Unfortunately, I was running late for my meeting (due to the 30 minutes!) and I didn't get a photo of the dozens of cookies. By the time I got home, DH had eaten all but one of the ones left on the rack - so here's the photo of the ONE.

These are rich, soft and chewy. I made one change—I used half orange extract and half the vanilla, for more orange flavor. Orange and cranberries are so good together and then add white chocolate and I’m over the moon.
