1/4 teaspoon salt

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 Preheat oven to 355°F. Soak cranberries in warm water while you complete next steps – just drain when ready to use

2 In a large bowl using an electric mixer combine the sugar, brown sugar and butter; mix well to cream together.

3 Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until combined.

4 Add the cinnamon, baking soda, salt and flour and mix well.
