Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies

This cookie might sound like a typical Christmas cookie but orange and cranberry is such a good combination that you would probably want to make not only Christmas time but whenever you want!
The ingredients are simple and it will take your only 10 minutes to prepare the dough.So let's start!

1 stick unsalted butter,room temperature
1/4 cup plus 2 tbsp confectioner's sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp almond extract
1/2 tbsp finely grated orange zest
1/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 tsp of baking powder
pinch of salt (creates miracle)


  • Cream the butter until creamy and smooth,about 2 to 3 minutes.Add the powdered sugar in several batches,beating until smooth after each addition.Add vanilla extract,almond extract,orange zest and dried cranberries.Mix just until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl mix together flour,baking powder and salt.Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix gently until the dough comes together.I used my hand in here!
  • From dough into 2 logs ,each about 1/1,2 inches in diameter,warp in parchment and refrigerate until firm(at least couple of hours)up to couple of days.I waited for one night.
  • When you are ready to bake preheat the oven to 170 C.Remove parchment.Slice logs into 1/4 inch thick rounds and space about 1 inch apart on baking sheets lined with parchment. Bake until pale golden about 13-15 minutes.Let cool and enjoy!
