Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
Combine your sugar and butter using a hand mixer. Mix until it is fluffy.
Add in your egg, maple syrup and vanilla. Blend well.
Add in your baking powder and mix again.
Add in your flour slowly, mixing in about 1/2 cup at a time.
Once all your flour is in, fold in your dried cranberries.
Using a melon baller for size consistency, place individual dollops of cookie dough on the cookie sheet with parchment paper.
Using the bottom of a glass, flatten out your cookie balls a bit.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes. No longer or you will have burnt cookies. These will not brown like chocolate chips.
Once done, remove from the oven and cool.
While your cookies are cooling, combine your additional dried cranberries and sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
In another small bowl, combine your milk, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mix everything together well until combined and it makes a smooth glaze.
Spoon a bit of the sugar topping onto the cookies and then top with the sugared cranberries. Let harden and serve.
