1970S CRANBERRY COOKIES

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
2 tbsp orange juice
1 egg
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 cup chopped pecans
2 1/2 cups coarsely chopped frozen cranberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Lightly grease cookie sheets; set aside.

Cream the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar together. Stir in the milk, orange juice, and egg.

Combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture. Stir in the chopped pecans and the chopped cranberries.

Drop the dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 minutes apart on the prepared baking sheets. Bake 10 to 15 minutes until lightly browned. Allow to cool about 1 minute on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
