Cranberry Noel Tea Cookies Recipe + Directions:
(Yield: Approx. 40 cookies)
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3/4 cup chopped dried cranberries
1. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter & sugar together until light and fluffy.
Add the milk & vanilla, mix until just blended. Add the salt & flour, mix well.
Using a spatula, fold in the pecans and cranberries.
2. Divide batter in half. Roll batter into 2 even sized logs, and wrap in saran wrap.
Chill the dough in the freezer for 30 minutes – 1 hour. (the dough needs to firm up so you can cut the cookies without losing their round shape).
3. After chilling, slice cookies approx. 1/4″ thick.
Place on baking sheets prepared with non-stick cooking spray, or parchment paper.
Bake at 375 degrees F. for 10 minutes.
Do not overbake!
Happy Holiday Baking!
