Orange Cranberry Shortbread Stars

I just love shortbread..the buttery crumbly yumminess that it is.  This recipe is a great little shortbread recipe for the Christmas cooky tray.  You could also cut it in circles, or even bite size squares.

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped dried cranberries
  • zest of one small orange
  • Mix butter and confectioner's sugar.  Add salt and vanilla.  Slowly mix in flour-it will be crumbly.  Now mix in the cranberries and orange zest.  Shape into a disk shape on a piece of plastic wrap.  Wrap dough and refrigerate for 20-30 minutes.  Roll out onto a floured surface and cut into stars with a cooky cutter.  Bake at 325 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
