I love cranberries and couldn't wait to make these. Since I didn't need 6 dozen (the amount indicated in the recipe), I cut the ingredients by half thinking I would get 3 dozen; however, I only got 26 cookies. I even made them smaller than recommended. I chose to use the flattened method. They are fantastic! The only change I made was to add a pinch of salt and some fresh fruit zest. I will definitely make these again this week-end and am sure they will be a hit.
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!
