Ingredients

Instructions 

  • Cream butter and sugar on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 4 - 6 minutes. Add vanilla, orange and lemon zest and beat until combined.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk flour with salt. Add to butter mixture and beat until just combined.
  • Place cranberries in bottom of food processor and pulse a few times until chopped into pea size pieces. Or use a sharp knife to chop. Fold cranberries into cookie dough until equally dispersed.
  • Form dough into a 3 x 6 loaf, wrap in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheet with parchment or silicone mat.
  • Slice dough into 1/2-inch slices. Arrange slices on baking sheet 1-inch apart. Bake until firm but not browned, 8 - 10 minutes. Transfer to wire rack to cool.
