Ingredients

How to make it

  • In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add milk and vanilla. Beat until just combined. With mixer on low, gradually add flour, salt, cranberries, and pecans; continue beating until fully combined.
  • Turn dough out onto a clean work surface, and divide into 2 equal pieces. Shape each piece into an 8-inch log, about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap logs in plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm, about 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using a sharp knife, cut logs into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until edges are golden, 14 to 16 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Remove from oven, and transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
  • Helpful Hint Once formed into logs and wrapped well in plastic, the dough can be stored in the freezer for up to a month.
  • Before slicing, leave the dough at room temperature until it just begins to soften.
  • For a festive variation, roll the edges in colored sanding sugar before baking.
