Cranberry Kringles Recipe

This is one of my kids favorite Christmas cookies. Cranberry Kringles.

Put 1 1/2 cup butter in the bowl of your mixer.

Add 2 cups of white sugar and grate 2 tablespoons of orange peel into the mix. Beat this until creamy.

Add 2 Tablespoons of vanilla extract. I use vanilla bean paste.  Add 1 egg.

Beat this until creamy.

Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder.

Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt.

Put the paddle attachment on your mixer and beat in 3 1/4 cup flour.

Add 2 cups of dried cranberries.

Add 2 cups of shredded coconut.

The dough will look a bit shaggy.

Scoop them into small balls ...about 2 tablespoons.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. They should just be slightly browning on the edge. Do not overcook.

I doubled this recipe and it made about 85 cookies.

This is a very chewy cookie.

The tree is up.

Dec. 5th on the advent house.

The lights are on the tree and I am decorating it today. Right now I am baking the mincemeat tarts which I will show soon.

I love cranberries and coconut! So, you know the rest of the story. In order to eat these, I will need to bake them. :)

Have a great day.

Love the tree and lights.

I have actually eaten some cookies similar to these one time. I remember buying ready made ones somewhere and I liked them a lot. I know one can´t compare bought cookies with home made, bought ones can never taste as good. But since we don´t use cranberries over here that´s the closest I can come :-)

Have a great day now!

Your tree looks so pretty. Mine went up today, of course I no longer have a real one and i sure do miss the wonderful smell of it.
Oh, I love cranberries - these cookies look great. Think I'll try them soon. Thanks so much! Theresa
