Cranberry Noel Tea Cookies

Cranberry Noel Tea Cookies
Makes 35-40 cookies

2 sticks salted butter at room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
2 T milk or cream
1 t vanilla
1/2 t salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 c chopped pecans
3/4 c chopped dried cranberries
1/4 c extra sugar

Cream butter and sugar til fluffy. Add milk and vanilla – mix. Add flour and salt – mix well.  Add cranberries and pecans.

Add cranberries and pecans…

Roll into 2 logs about 8 x 1 1/2″.  Wrap and chill for 2 hours in the fridge.  I’ve also put them in the freezer for 30-60 minutes and this works the same way.  You just want it to be firm enough to cut without misshaping the round cookie.

Slice cookies about 1/4″ thick.  Roll edges of cookie in sugar (if you want.  But I highly recommend!)

Place on lightly greased cookie sheets, or Silpats. Bake at 375 for 10-15 minutes.  DON’T OVER-BAKE (well, unless you like hard hockey puck type cookies…)

Place on cookie sheet

Eat.  Eat more.  Eat a few more.  Give some to friends – wait, just kidding.
