  • Summary

    Orange-scented cranberries -- usually a seasonal relish -- get a spot on the dessert table in these two-bite cookies. The crunchy yellow cornmeal crust, brightened with orange zest, is a fitting match. Says Shira Bocar, "With the tart fruit, it makes a tasty little holiday package."

    Ingredients

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal, preferably stone-ground
    • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
    • 4 ounces (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
    • 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
    • 1 large egg, separated
    • 4 ounces fresh cranberries (1 cup)
    • 1/2 cup water, plus more if needed
    • 1/4 cup sugar
    • 1 strip (2 inches) orange zest
