Happy Friday, I hope you have had a great week! If you are following my blog, you already know that I have been baking up a storm this week. I just love holiday baking and I am so happy that I was finally able to set aside the time to do it. I started off with some easy Gluten-Free Lemon Drop Cookies, then worked my way on to the kid’s favorite: Chocolate Candy Cane Cookies. Yesterday, I whipped up a batch of Raspberry Shortbread Cookies. So today, I made my personal favorite: Cranberry and Rosemary Shortbread!
Cranberry and Rosemary Shortbread
As much as I love baking cookies, I have to admit that I do not have much of a sweet tooth! In fact, I am more of a savory-salty food connoisseur. I know that is why I absolutely love this recipe! The rosemary satisfies my fondness for savory, while the dried cranberries finish it off with a hint of sweetness. This shortbread recipe calls for a whopping 4 sticks (1 pound) of butter making them very decadent and rich. A small square of this Cranberry and Rosemary Shortbread goes a long way!
- 4 Cups of Flour
- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1/3 Cup of Fresh Rosemary Leaves, finely chopped
- 1/2 Cup of Dried Cranberries
- 1 Pound of Butter, cut into very small pieces
- Confectioner's Sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Combine flour, sugar, rosemary, and dried cranberries in a large bowl
- Use a pastry blender (or 2 knives) to work butter into flour mixture
- Continue to work the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse meal
- Press flour-butter mixture in to 9 x 13 inch baking dish
- Bake at 375 degrees for approximately 25 minutes, or until top of shortbread turns light, golden brown
- Remove from oven and cool
- Once shortbread is cool, sprinkle with confectioner's sugar and cut into small squares
