Cranberry Apple Cookies

In the fall, when apples and cranberries are in season, I love to make these cranberry apple cookies. They are a perfect blend of sweet and tart, and the cranberries add a beautiful pop of color. These cookies are also very easy to make, and they freeze well, so you can make a batch ahead of time and enjoy them all season long.

1/2 cups softened butter or margarine
1 cups firmly packed brown sugar
3/4 cups white sugar
1 egg whites (whipped)
1/4 cups skim milk (room temp)
2 cups flour
1/4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoons orange zest
1 1/2 cups peeled and chopped apples
1 cups chopped cranberries

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking or cookie sheet. In medium mixing bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, white sugar, whipped egg white and milk. In separate bowl, combine flour, cinnamon, salt, baking powder, orange zest, chopped apples and chopped cranberries. Combine wet and dry ingredients til just moistened. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto the baking sheets, about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12-15 min.
