Directions

  1. In a mixing bowl, use a hand-held mixer to beat together the butter and sugar. Beat for 3 minutes or until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  2. Add the flour. If you used unsalted butter, add 1/4 teaspoon of salt now too.
  3. With your beater on a low setting, beat the dry ingredients into the butter and sugar mixture until well combined.
  4. Add in the orange zest and chopped cranberries.
  5. Use a wooden spoon to mix the zest and berries into the cookie batter.
  6. Turn the dough out onto a sheet of parchment paper.
  7. Form the dough into a long log, about 45 centimeters or 18 inches in length.
  8. Roll the log in the parchment paper and then into plastic wrap.
  9. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  10. When ready to bake, preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  11. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with a silicone liner or with parchment paper and set it aside.
  12. Remove the plastic wrap and parchment paper from the cookie log.
  13. Using a sharp knife, cut the log into one centimeter or 3/8 inch slices.
  14. Lay the slices onto the prepared baking sheet about an inch apart.
  15. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottom edge of the cookies have browned.
  16. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes.
  17. Remove and transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
