Cranberry Chip Cookies with Browned Butter Glaze

This is our family's all-time favorite Christmas cookie. The recipe originally comes from a Betty Crocker holiday cookbook

Cranberry Chip Cookies with Browned Butter Glaze: Makes 42-48 ( 3 points)

1 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 stick butter, softened
1/4 c. skim milk
2 T. orange juice
1 egg
3 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda
2-1/2 c. coarsely chopped cranberries
1 c. vanilla milk chips

Browned Butter Glaze: ( I never use all of this. In fact, I used only half this year)

1/3 c. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
2-4 T. hot water

Heat oven to 375 and spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
Mix sugars and butter until well blended. Add orange juice, milk and egg. Stir in flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Carefully stir in cranberries and vanilla chips. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets. Bake 10-15 minutes or until light brown. Cool.

For glaze, melt butter in a saucepan until browned. Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar, vanilla and enough water to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cookies. Let set before packaging.
