Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies – Sharon Palmer, The Plant Powered Dietitian

Call upon the flavor of seasonal cranberries for these festive, tender vegan Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies. With a touch of zesty orange and crunchy almonds, these vegan shortbread cookies are perfect for your next coffee break, weekend, or party. They are also ideal holiday cookies, due to their festive red cranberry color! These plant-based shortbread Christmas cookies are lighter in sugar, but packed in vibrant color and flavors. Plus, they are so easy to make out of many ingredients you probably have in your kitchen right now. In fact, this recipe contains only seven ingredients, not including pantry staples. If you don’t have fresh cranberries, substitute frozen, which are available in many supermarkets. I really love giving these cookies as holiday gifts packaged up in a jar and wrapped up with a ribbon. Learn more about my favorite edible food gifts here. These yummy shortbread cookies are also fabulous served with tea or coffee. Make these cookies gluten-free by swapping out all purpose flour for a gluten-free flour blend.

Description

These festive, tender, yummy vegan Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies are perfect to make throughout the holiday season.

Instructions

  1. Place vegan butter and sugar in bowl and mix with an electric mixer (or vigorously by hand) until smooth and creamy.
  2. Mix in 1 tablespoon of the orange juice and vanilla.
  3. Mix in the zest of one orange, flour, oats, almonds, baking powder, and salt (optional) to make a crumbly texture. Mix in additional orange juice (1-2 tablespoons more), as needed, using your hands to help mix to create a smooth, cohesive batter that holds together, but is not sticky.
  4. Finely chop cranberries in a food processor or by hand using a knife. Gently fold in the cranberries into the dough.
  5. Cover and place dough in the refrigerator for 1 hour until firm.
  6. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  7. Separate dough into 3 equal sections, and roll out by hand into 3 logs, about 1 ½-inches in diameter each.
  8. Slice into thin sections, about ¼- to 1/2-inch each, so that each log yields 10 slices.
  9. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray, and bake for about 12 minutes, until just barely golden.
  10. Store in airtight container.

Notes

* Zest the entire surface of the orange using a fine grater or zester. Squeeze juice, using 1-3 tablespoons for this recipe. Reserve remaining juice for another recipe or use.

To make this recipe gluten-free substitute gluten-free flour blend for all-purpose flour.
