Perfect for your next cookie exchange!


  • 1 stick Butter
  • ¼ cups Powdered Sugar
  • ½ teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ¼ teaspoons Cardamom
  • 1 teaspoon Orange Zest
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ½ cups Dried Cranberries, Chopped
  • Sprinkles


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. In a medium bowl, beat the butter on high for about 30 seconds. Gradually add in the powdered sugar, and beat until well-combined.

Beat in the vanilla, cardamom, orange zest, and flour. The mixture will be crumbly. Stir in the cranberries.

Shape into 1″ balls and then roll in sprinkles. Bake 1″ apart on the cookie sheet for about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest one minute; then remove to a wire rack to cool. Makes a dozen cookies. Can easily be doubled or tripled!
