I saw this recipe for the Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies on Lorrie's blog a long time ago, and have been wanting to make them ever since. Lorrie has the most beautiful blog, which you can check out here. I knew that these cookies would be perfect to take to some friends that moved into a new home, and also to a friend that is recovering from surgery.
I did get to taste a cookie or two, and used my Rose Chintz teacup with some Cranberry Black tea that was in a set that my daughter gave me for Christmas.
This is my Winter sampler that I made several years ago.
Lorrie actually chills the dough for the cookies and then forms them into balls, and uses a fork to press down on them before baking. I decided to be lazy and formed the dough into rolls in order to slice and bake them.
I am sharing this with these lovely parties:
