Cranberry Almond Shortbread Bites

Shortbread is, in my opinion, one of the most underrated cookies. It really has a lot going for it, rich buttery taste, crumbly sweet texture, and unmatched versatility. You can add nearly anything to the dough to create one of a kind flavors such as this Cranberry Almond recipe.

These bite-size cookies are perfect for wrapping up as a gift, serving at a party, or snacking. Plus the recipe is easy enough for kids to make! Hope you enjoy them! 

  • 1/2 cup of cold butter cut into pieces (I would not recommend making this with margarine.)
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 almond flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup of dried cranberries-finely chopped


Mix all the ingredients in a bowl and cut together with a pastry cutter. Perfect work for little hands!

Once the dough passes a pinch test (Grab a pinch-if it sticks together it’s ready.) knead until all the crumbs are combined.

Form into four four-inch balls, flatten into circles and cut with a dough scraper into wedges. Leave the wedges together!

You don’t have to form the dough into four balls you can also make just one, I happen to like lots of crunchy edges and the smaller bites also make it easier to pack if you’re going to be giving them as a gift!

Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet in a 325-degree oven for 25-30 minutes until the edges are golden. Once removed from the oven re-cut the wedges and let it all cool on the sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.

This recipe is part of the Christmas Cookie Exchange Party, be sure to check it out for over 40 treats for you to try!
