Almond Cranberry Cookie


by: Anncoo

As Christmas is about 3 weeks away, I think it is time to start making some new flavoured cookies for sampling. Not only for Christmas but also for Chinese New Year which falls on 23 Jan 2012. How time flies. In less than two months, we'll be celebrating Chinese New Year. For today's Almond Cranberry Cookies, I used the leftover cranberries from my Cranberry Yogurt Chiffon Cake. The recipe was adapted from the book of ?????100??????. These cookies are made using the rub-in method just like for short crust pastry. You don't need a mixer to mix the ingredients, very easy! The crunchy cookies have an almond aroma and a slight tangy taste of cranberries. I would prefer to add in a little more dried cranberries to give an extra tangy taste the next time I make these cookies again. The recipe is definitely a keeper for sure.
