A good freind of mine brought me these for Christmas one year. I insisted on having the recipe! They are so delicate in flavor and the dried cranberries add just the perfect slightly chewy texture. Warning: They are addictive!!
3/4 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup unsalted butter softened
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup dried cranberries (chopped)*
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
Cream sugar, butter and salt. Blend in cranberries and vanilla. Mix in the flour. Roll our and cut into squares (or shapes). Bake 13-18 minutes in preheated 325 degree oven on parchment paper lined cookie sheet until pale brown.
*A coffee bean grinder works well to chop the cranberries.
