2 eggs

2 tablespoons light corn syrup

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 cup cornmeal

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

1 ½ cups dried cranberries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar and butter in large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy, 1 to 2 minutes. Add eggs, corn syrup and vanilla, and continue beating until well mixed, about 2 minutes.

Shape rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, then roll in sugar. Place 1 inch apart on cookie sheets lined with parchment paper and flatten slightly with hand. Bake for 9 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

Yield: Makes 7 dozen cookies.
