Strawberry Cranberries Cookies


I was invited to participate in this July Key Ingredient's Cooks Kitchen contest and the key ingredient for this month is berry. Since I just bought a packet of dried cranberries, I thought that would be perfect. I wanted to make a cookie recipe and since the key ingredient is berry, I thought a strawberry flavor cookie would be great. So, I came out with this crispy Strawberry Cranberries Cookies. Well, my daughters both loved it and walloped half of the cookies before it even had a chance to cool down. My hubby later finished the rest. I hope you will like it too!




Ingredients:

(A)

1 1/2 cup self-raising flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
(B)
1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter, softened
2 tsp. imitation strawberry extract
1 Tbsp. milk
(C)
1/2 cup. sweeten dried cranberries, chopped

Method:

1. In a food processor, add in (A). Pulse to combine.

2. Then, add in (B) and pulse until a dough is almost formed. Add in (C) and pulse until combined. Take it out on a lightly flour surface and give it a few kneads and formed into a dough. Roll to 1/4 inch thickness and cut with a cookie cutter. (Note: the dough will be soft, you need to transfer the cookie with a scraper or you can refrigerate the cookie dough for at least 30 mins. before rolling.)

3. Place on a parchment lined baking pan and bake in preheated 350'F oven for 10-12 minutes or until lightly brown on edges.



I am submitting this recipe to Key Ingredient's Cooks Kitchen contest: July~Berry Inspired Recipe.
