White Chocolate Orange Cranberry Cookies

After looking through my recipe drawer and seeing a recipe for cranberry orange muffins, I thought "Mmmm that would be really good as a cookie".  And sure enough, it is!

White Chocolate Orange Cranberry Cookies
 In a bowl place 1/2 cup shortening and 1/4 cup softened butter.
 Add 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 
 a packed 3/4 cup brown sugar.
 Cream all this together until well incorporated.
 Add 2 eggs
 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
 2 tablespoons of orange rind
 and 2 tablespoons of orange juice.  Mix well.
 Now add 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
 and 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (you can just do regular all-purpose flour if you don't have any whole wheat and it will still turn out fine).
 and 3/4 teaspoon baking soda and 1 teaspoon salt.  Mix until just incorporated.
 Stir in 3/4 cup dried cranberries and 
 1 cup white chocolate chips.  Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto slightly greased baking sheet.  Bake at 375 degrees for 9-11 minutes or until edges are slightly brown.
Wouldn't these be great to serve at a brunch!
