    This one is not non-bake, but really good.
    Comes from Betty Crocker Cooky Book (that’s how it is spelled – Cooky)

    Cranberry Drop Cookies
    ½ cup butter (1 stick) – room temperature
    1 cup granulated sugar
    ¾ cup packed brown sugar
    ¼ cup whole milk
    2 tablespoons orange juice
    (I also add zest from ½ of an orange)
    (sometimes I also add a couple drops of orange oil)
    ½ teaspoon vanilla
    1 large egg
    3 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    ½ teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda
    1 cup sliced or chopped almonds
    2 ½ cups coarsely chopped cranberries
    Heat oven to 375 degrees
    Cream butter and sugars. Add milk, orange juice, zest and egg – mix well.
    Sift flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt into the bowl and mix.
    Stir in nuts and cranberries.
    Drop dough by teaspoonfuls (or I use small ice cream scooper) on greased baking sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes until slightly golden.
