These are perfect for the person who doesn’t like their sweets too sweet. I looooove them. I even keep some in the fridge and eat them for breakfast! Yum.
Let’s make cookies together...
You’ll need: 2 cups all purpose flour, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 orange, 1/4 cup dried cranberries, 1 cup softened butter.
zest one orange
dump it in a medium sized bowl along with two sticks of softened butter
whip it until it’s nice and fluffy
now 1/2 cup powdered sugar
mix it well
next, 2 cups of flour
when you first start mixing it’ll look crumbly... just keep going
chop 1/4 cup dried cranberries
stir them in with a spatula
lay out a piece of plastic wrap
plop your cookie dough on top
shape it into a log
roll up it tightly
i went for an extra layer just to be sure
Roll it like play dough till you’re satisfied with the shape. Pop it in the freezer until you’re ready to bake (at least 30 min up to four months)
pull out the cookie dough while you preheat your oven to 350°
unwrap it on a cutting board
slice into 1/3 inch thick
bake for 14 minutes
lol. They don’t look much different after they’re baked except that the edges are a bit golden. Leave on the baking sheet until cooled.
eat as is ooooorrr top with an orange glaze—
For the glaze: whisk 1 1/2 c p sugar with the juice from half an orange
Spoon the glaze onto each cookie + use a baking sheet and cooling rack to catch the drippings
The icing will set so you can stack them + serve them at a tea party.
