We got a real holiday cookie winner over here with these Cranberry Orange Shortbread Cookies!

If you're always on the lookout for new and delicious cookie recipes to share with friends, this is the one to bake up!

These cookies require some forethought and preparation, as the dough needs to be refrigerated for at least 2 hours before baking.

These cookies are rolled in dough  form, into a mixture of demerara sugar (aka, sugar in the raw) and orange zest. This part is essential for those crispy edges brimming with orange flavor.

The trick to a great cookie exchange cookie is its portability! It must transport easily, keep well, the cookies should preferably be stackable, and they need to pack well into containers. This cookie does all that!
