Cookies don’t get much simpler than shortbread. Butter. Sugar. Flour. Tins of Walker’s shortbread are always the first sign of the holidays. Cranberries are the other indication of Thanksmas (Thanksgiving/Christmas). I buy a bag of fresh cranberries for Thanksgiving to make cranberry sauce, I will only use half of it, and then stress out about what to do with the other half of the bag. Luckily this recipe requires dried cranberries, which keeps for ages.
