How-To: Cranberry Cookies

Food & Beverage Home

Christy at Instructables has a recipe for these delightful cranberry cookies, which appear to be perfect in every way:

Cranberry cookies make great Christmas cookies, but are also a great way to use up leftover fresh cranberries after the holidays. These are my favorite cranberry nut swirl cookies – they’re well worth freezing cranberries so you can make them any time during the year!

These are great make-ahead cookies! You can freeze the rolled log indefinitely, then slice and bake the cookies whenever you like! Then as scooch would say, you’re only 12 minutes away from fresh hot cookies!

Sneaky Valentine’s Day mod: pinch the cylinder of dough on one side, and poke it in on the other before freezing it to make a heart-shaped cross-section. Delicious, and arguably romantic. ;)
