Cranberry Sauce Cookies December 21 2015, 0 Comments

Makes about 4 dozen cookies

Ingredients:

  • 1 to 2 cups Cucina Antica Cranberry Sauce
  • 6 cups flour
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 eggs

Preparation:

Combine flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until well-combined. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing each well. Gradually beat in flour mixture until a smooth dough forms. Mix in nuts. Allow the dough to chill one hour.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out dough and use a cookie cutter to cut out rounded flat pieces. For each cookie, lay one cut-out onto a greased cookie sheet. Top with a teaspoon-full of Cucina Antica Cranberry Sauce, and top with a second cookie cut-out. Press the sides together. Repeat for remaining cookies or until cookie sheet is filled. Bake 10 to 11 minutes, until golden brown.
