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.

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

Carol Sue from Chalmette, LA

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.

Would make again, but

Used the cherry crasins and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract and they were delicious. Formed into small balls and it only made 3 dozen so next time I will definitely double the recipe

AWESOME and pretty too!

These cookies are mouthwatering and SUPER SIMPLE. I will make these every year.
