There is nothing more comforting than a quiet evening at home with some exquisite and tempting cookies like these.....
Chocolate Chip Cranberry Shortbread Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1/2 cup dried cranberries
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and add flour and salt. Stir in chips and cranberries. Divide dough in half. Press each half into an ungreased 8 inch round pan. Bake 12 minutes or until edges are golden. Score each shortbread with sharp knife into 8 even wedges but do not cut all the way through. Leave in pans and cool on racks for 10 minutes. Invert onto racks and cool completely. Break into wedges.
I decided to just wing it and sort of drop them into rounds instead of pressing them in a pan. Either way it's great!
