Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

Servings: 6 dozen cookies
1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 package sweetened dried cranberries, chopped

Preheat oven to 325°F (180°C).

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in flour, a little at a time. Stir in sweetened dried cranberries.

Form dough into 1-inch balls. Place 1 dozen at a time on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 15 to 17 minutes. Remove from sheets; cool slightly and sprinkle with icing sugar. Or use the bottom of a glass dipped in granulated sugar to flatten balls to rounds about 2 inches in diameter. Bake 12 to 14 minutes. Cool.
