Cranberry Tea Cookies

Cranberries are one of my favourite things! When I think of the holiday season, I think of cranberries. The red colour adds a festive touch to any recipe and the texture and taste are great! If you are looking to entertain this holiday season or really any time, you will want to check out this recipe.
