Fresh Cranberry Almond Shortbread

A nice tea cookie really hits the spot sometimes. In these colder winter months, curling up with a nice shortbread cookie and a cup of earl grey (and a book), is pretty perfect. These fresh cranberry almond shortbread cookies are the best for that sort of ambience.

In case you haven’t noticed by now, I LOVE fresh cranberries. I love coming up with new ways to enjoy them, and mixing them in with some almond flavor is amazing. I prefer fresh cranberries because they pack a more powerful tart punch, which works so well with the sweeter shortbread. The only thing about fresh cranberries is that they can be pretty juicy. BUT, I actually loved the marbled look of these cookies! A little extra splash of color. Happy baking!

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and the sugar until fluffy. Add in the almond extract. Slowly, add in the flour.
  3. The dough will be a little crumbly, so add in water 1 Tbsp. at a time until the dough comes together.
  4. In a small bowl, sprinkle cranberries with 1 Tbsp. of sugar. Then add to the dough. Cover dough and refrigerate for at least two hours.
  5. Then roll out the dough between parchment and or plastic wrap (cranberries can stain!). Using a cookie cutter, cut out cookies that are about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Place on baking sheet and bake at 325 degrees F for 15 minutes until the edges just begin to brown. Remove and let cool.
