Cranberry Tea Cookies

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/3 cup plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 cups dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated orange zest
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • Confectioners' sugar


In a large bowl, beat butter, cream cheese, 1/3 cup sugar and salt until blended. Gradually beat in flour. Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap and refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
In a small heavy saucepan, combine cranberries, orange zest, orange juice and remaining sugar. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 8-10 minutes or until liquid is almost absorbed, stirring occasionally. Cool completely.
Preheat oven to 325°. On a floured surface, roll each portion of dough to a 10-in. square. Cut each into twenty-five 2-in. squares. Place 1 teaspoon cranberry mixture in center of each square. Bring two opposite corners of each square to the center; pinch firmly to seal. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
Bake 18-20 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely. Dust tops with confectioners' sugar.
