As Valentine’s Day gets closer, I have been gathering cute ideas for my kids classroom parties on Pinterest. The ideas you can find on there are really amazing! I also love to bake, so I was thinking of a cute cookie to make for teachers and friends. A friend at work always raves about my cranberry and white chocolate shortbread cookies so I thought, why not make those? They have the beautiful red and white colors for Valentine’s Day and everyone loves them! I originally got this recipe from the Kraft website, but here it is for you to make:
Cranberry and White Chocolate Shortbread Cookies
HEAT oven to 350°F. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add flour; mix well. Stir in chocolate and cranberries.
DROP rounded tablespoons of dough, 2 inches apart, onto baking sheets; flatten slightly.
BAKE 10 to 14 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 5 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
Once you have your cookies made up, why not gift them in some really pretty packaging? I love our personalized cookie boxes. They are adorable and perfect for gifting your baked goods. I also love to use plastic containers wrapped with red and white twine. You can add your personal note on top!
