This recipe is quick and simple and produces the most gorgeous shortbread cookies. I decided to add vanilla essence and orange zest to the mixture and everyone absolutely loved them. Will definitely be making these again soon.
Looked for super simple recipe for large party . .... OMG! These went so fast. Added the almond extract. Then added finely chopped pistachios to 2nd batch. These are my 'go to' recipe always now!!!
So unbelievably good!
These are just incredible. Added just a bit of Almond extract. The texture is so perfect. They look raw when they're done but they firm up nicely!
Added to our Christmas Cookie List
My sisters, nieces, daughter and I have been doing a huge Christmas Cookie fund raiser for the past 10 years. We're talking tens of thousands of cookies! We added this recipe for 2015 on a trial basis. People loved them and came back requesting more. It's a keeper! So easy to make and great tasting. Chopped the cranberries in the food processor ......... but don't process too long!
Just a little info
Customer service informed me that 5 oz. of cranberries is equal to 1 1/4 cup. I needed this info because I had a very large bag of dried cranberries. Also, for reference- 1 1/4 cup of butter is equal to 2 sticks plus 1/2 stick of butter.
