About 4 dozen cookies

1/2
cup sugar
1/2
cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4
cup butter or margarine, softened
2
teaspoons grated orange peel
3
eggs
3
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
3
teaspoons baking powder
3/4
cup sweetened dried cranberries, chopped
1/4
cup chopped almonds
Glaze
8
oz white chocolate baking bar, chopped
1
cup dark chocolate chips
1
teaspoon grated orange peel
  1. Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 1 large or 2 small cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  2. In 4-quart bowl, beat sugar, brown sugar and butter with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add 2 teaspoons orange peel and the eggs; beat well. Stir in flour and baking powder; mix well. Stir in cranberries and almonds.
  3. Shape dough into 3 rolls, each about 7 inches long. Place rolls at least 3 inches apart on cookie sheet; flatten each to form 3/4-inch-thick rectangle, about 3 inches wide and 7 inches long.
  4. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until rectangles are light golden brown and centers are firm to the touch. Place rectangles on cooling racks; cool 5 minutes.
  5. Wipe cookie sheet clean. With serrated knife, cut each rectangle into 1/2-inch slices; place, cut side up, on cookie sheet.
  6. Bake 6 to 8 minutes or until top surface is slightly dry. Turn cookies over; bake 6 to 8 minutes longer or until top surface is slightly dry. Remove cookies from cookie sheets; cool completely on cooling racks.
  7. Melt white chocolate in 2-quart heavy saucepan over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; dip 1 long side of each of 24 cookies into chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set. In another 2-quart heavy saucepan, melt dark chocolate over low heat, stirring until smooth. Remove from heat; dip 1 long side of remaining 24 cookies into chocolate. Place on waxed paper until chocolate is set. Store tightly covered.

How-To
When grating orange peel, be sure to grate only the orange part of the skin. A grater with tiny holes works especially well. Avoid the white part, or pith, which is bitter.
