Fluffy Cranberry - Orange Cookies

1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/4 cup butter substitute (I use Soy Garden)
1/4 cup applesauce
3 egg whites
4 tsp orange juice (I also add 1 tsp orange zest)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 cups unbleached flour, sifted
1 cup mashed fresh cranberries

Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix syrup, butter, egg whites, applesauce and orange juice (and orange zest if want more orange flavor) thoroughly. Add baking powder, salt, and flour and mix well. Stir in cranberries. Shape dough into small balls. Place on greased cookie sheet (I use parchment paper -- works perfect every time with no sticking and no mess). Bake 8 to 10 minutes. Makes 5 dozen.

These cookies are not too sweet and they have a nice flavor. They cook up nice and light, a delicious snack.

**Baking tip: I found that pureeing the cranberries using the large chopping blade of the food processor makes them too fine and produces too much juice, which causes the cookies to be flat and kind of soggy (still very edible, just not the fluffy texture I prefer!). I found that running them through the food processor's slicing blade (mine is on the same disc as the cheese shredder) produces a nice baking size. And so much easier than chopping and/or mashing them by hand!
