Ingredients

1 1/4 cups butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 5-ounce package Craisins® Original Dried Cranberries, chopped*

Directions

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the flour, a little at a time, until combined. Stir in dried cranberries.

Cookies can be made into balls or flattened. To make round cookies, roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 dozen at a time on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from sheets; cool slightly and dust with additional powdered sugar.

To make flat cookies, form dough into 1-inch balls as directed above. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar, flatten balls on cookie sheet, making rounds 2-inches in diameter. Bake 12 to 14 minutes. Cool.

Makes 6 dozen cookies.

* For orange-flavored cookies, use Craisins® Orange Flavor Dried Cranberries and 2 teaspoons grated orange peel.

These are the BEST!!

These melt in your mouth cookies are amazing and super easy to make! I am not a baker but was able to make these in no time!

Beautiful, easy, and tasty -- perfect cookie

Arlene from Kent, Washington

I made these using the "flat" option (rather than the round balls). So easy.tender & yummy. These probably wouldn't ship well, but they are definitely going to be in my Christmas recipe exchange & on plates this holiday season. I loved these!!!

Add a twist!

Rachael from Milford, Connecticut

Add semi sweet/white chocolate chips to this. I've also dipped these in dark chocolate like moon cookies. Add zests like orange, tangerine, lemon, etc and you'll get a fantastic cookie everytime. Super easy recipe super delicious cookie!

Great Tea Party Snack

Doris from Floral City, FL

This recipe is one of my favorites. I added nuts and orange zest to the recipe and everyone loved it. It has become one of my favorites. Freezes well, too. I roll them in powdered sugar after baking, then when cooled, roll them once again in powdered sugar.

I zested an entire orange rind and added it in

Cindy from Windsor, NY

The only thing I would question is should the flour be sifted before it is measured? I think when I make them next time I am going to try that. Everyone at work wants the recipe!
