CRANBERRY-ALMOND TEA COOKIES
A favorite of my friends and family as I make this often for party favors or simply for treats share. Share with me by a former co-worker friend of mine, the original recipe called for mini chocolate chips and walnuts which I replaced with almonds and cranberries. Feel free to switch with your favorite ingredients. Very delicate and light in texture.
- 1 c. butter, softened
- 1/2 c. powdered sugar, sifted
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- 2 c. all-purpose flour
- 1/2 c. almonds, toasted, finely chopped
- 1 c. dried cranberries, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees; lightly grease baking sheets. In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Beat in extract. Gradually stir in flour and almonds. Add cranberries. Using # 18 scoop, place onto prepared baking sheets (place close together, 80 cookies will fit on one baking sheet). Bake 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes. Note: Makes great party favors. Makes 9 dozen mini cookies.
