In a bowl mix together the butter, sugar, egg and vanilla. Beat until it is light and fluffy. Add in the flour, baking powder and salt. Place in the refrigerator for 1 hour. In a separate bowl, combine the cranberries, walnuts and orange peel. Set aside. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough so it's flat. Spread brown sugar and milk over the dough. Sprinkle the cranberry mixture. Tightly roll up the dough. Wrap with waxed paper. Cut into cookie and place them on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes at 375 degrees.
