Christmas Cranberry Cookies

Cranberry Cookies are a perennial holiday favorite. These cookies are delicious because they are sweet without tasting too buttery or cloying, unlike many greasy, gooey winter desserts.

Notes

If using dried cranberries, cover cranberries with boiling water and plump for 10 minutes before chopping.
