Salted Shortbread Cranberry Cookies Recipe
A twist on a classic favorite – Salted Shortbread Cranberry Cookies
We love this Salted Shortbread Cranberry Cookies Recipe. So much so that my family could probably eat it all year long if I made it all year.
Not only do we love having these cookies out for us to snack on but they are great to have on hand for holiday parties whether it’s for Thanksgiving, Christmas or really any fall and winter get together. I also like to add them to any gift baskets we may put together for friends and family, after who doesn’t love to receive a yummy treat?
So who is ready to find out how we make our Salted Cranberry Shortbread Cookies? Let’s get to the recipe now shall we?
- 2 1/3 all-purpose flour, shifted
- 1 cup powdered sugar, shifted
- 2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
- 1/4 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1/3 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup dried cranberries
- Preheat over to 325 degrees.
- In the bowl of a food processor, add softened unsalted butter, powdered sugar and pulse until smooth.
- Gradually add sifted all purpose flour and pulse mixed. Add flour and cranberries pulse just until combined.
- Roll out cookie dough to a 1/4" thickness and cut out cookies using a 3" round cookie cutter.
- Note. I didn't have a 3" cookie cutter, so I used a can and cut out both ends and it worked out perfectly.
- Place cookies on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper or use a silicone baking mat. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and sugar mixture. Refrigerate cookies for 25 - 30 minutes
- Bake cookies for 20 - 25 minutes. Cookies will be a pale ever so slightly golden brown.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
I of course love to sit down with my coffee (especially a Pumpkin Spice Mocha) and have a few of these delicious Salted Shortbread Cranberry Cookies. They’re also lovely with a cup of tea, milk and well really they go with anything or have them all by themselves. What’s not to enjoy?
When you make these, you may want to double the batch because if you love shortbread you’re bound to love these ones, they will go quickly You can add them to gift baskets. I also like to do up mason jars, decorate the with some colorful ribbons and put the cookies in the mason jar. It makes for a great gift idea, the cookies get consumed and the jars can be re-used by the person who received this delicious gift.
