Comment on this recipe

These are so easy to make.

Ingredients

3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 1/8 cups white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries

Instructions

Sift together the flour and cinnamon in a bowl. Cream together the butter and sugar in a separate bowl. Mix in 1 egg thoroughly, then mix in second egg. Slowly stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Stir in cranberries. Roll the dough into a log with a diameter of about 1 1/2 inches; wrap in plastic; place in freezer for at least 1 hour. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut cookie dough into 1/2-inch thick slices using a sharp knife. Arrange cookies onto a large ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes until edges turn brown. Makes 5 dozen cookies.
