Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies loaded with orange juice infused dried cranberries and orange zest.
Wash and dry your oranges.
Use a Microplane grater to zest the oranges.
Reserve the zest for the cookie dough.
Cut the oranges in half and juice them into a small microwave-safe bowl.
Heat the orange juice in the microwave for 40 seconds (or on the stove just until it begins to boil.)
Pour the hot juice over the dried cranberries and let them soak for 20-30 minutes, stirring every five minutes.
Pour the soaked cranberries into a mesh sieve and press down on them to remove all the excess juice.
Set aside until needed.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit.
Cream the butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Stir in the Karo® Corn Syrup.
Beat in the egg and egg yolk.
Add the orange zest.
Stir together the flour, baking soda, and salt and stir into the wet ingredients just until combined.
Toss in the drained cranberries and chocolate chips.
Scoop out 24 portions of the cookie dough, about 3 tablespoons each, onto four parchment paper-lined baking sheets.
Bake for 16-18 minutes, until the edges just begin to brown and the tops of the cookies begin to look dry.
Allow cookies to cool completely.
