3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 t baking powder
1/4 t salt
1 1/2 cups dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups sweetened flaked dried coconut
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a large bowl, with a mixer on medium speed,
beat 1 1/2 cups butter, sugar, orange peel, and
vanilla until smooth. In a medium bowl, mix
flour, baking powder, and salt. Add to butter
mixture, stir to mix, then beat on low speed
until dough comes together, about 5 minutes.

5 minutes, then use a wide spatula to transfer
to racks to cool completely.
