Cranberry White Chocolate Shortbread

Christmas is the one time of year that my family baked different kinds of cookies for guests.  Times have changed and we no longer need the selection of sweets we used to but I find myself still baking some of my holiday favourites.

The cranberry white chocolate shortbread recipe is my favourite cookie.  The tangy cranberries, aromatic almonds and white chocolate create a sumptuous cookie. 

I’ve tried replacing the white chocolate in this recipe with milk chocolate but the recipe is not the same.   If you absolutely hate white chocolate replace it with dark chocolate.  The bitter chocolate pares well with the cranberries.

Enjoy!
