  • 1/2 cup Longo’s Dried Cranberries, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp grated lime zest
  • 2 tsp grated orange zest

Directions:

Whisk together flour, sugar, and salt in bowl. 

Using a pastry blender or fingers, cut butter into flour mixture until size of oatmeal pieces. 

Blend in egg yolk and vanilla. Stir in cranberries, lime zest and orange zest until combined.

Divide dough in half and roll each portion into 8-inch long and 1-inch thick logs. Wrap in plastic wrap and place in fridge for at least 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Slice cookies into generous 1/4-inch slices and place on parchment-paper-lined baking sheets.
