½ C butter
½ C shortening
¾ C brown sugar
¾ C sugar
8 oz cream cheese
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
2 T frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2¾ C flour
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp salt
1½ C white chocolate chips
2/3 C dried cranberries
½ C orange juice


Preheat oven to 375°. Put dried cranberries to soak in a small bowl with orange juice; set aside.

Cream butter, shortening and sugars. Mix in cream cheese until blended. Add eggs, vanilla and orange juice concentrate and blend until smooth.

In a separate bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Add to creamed mixture all at once; mix until just combined. Drain cranberries. Add cranberries and white chocolate chips, blending until evenly distributed.

Drop dough by heaping teaspoons onto ungreased baking sheet, 2” apart. Bake 10-12 minutes. Cool 1-2 minutes on baking sheet, then transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
