Perfect cookies for the holiday season…

After being sick for more than a week, today I felt better. And I realized it’s been a while since I’ve baked cookies. In the evening, the gloomy weather encouraged me to do baking. I love the combination of dried cranberries and white chocolates. When they are added into shortbread cookie dough, the cookies turned delicious.

These shortbread cookies have a rich buttery flavor and they just melts into your mouth.
