    swissms's Note:

    I have not tried this recipe but I love the cookies from the Dancing Deer Bakery. Published in the Boston Globe. This is not a traditional Scottish shortbread cookie dough, but a versatile, crunchy sweet cookie that can be flavored with a variety of natural oils and your favorite combination of mix -ins. The article did not state quantity of cookies the recipe yields.

    Ingredients:

    Serves: 24

    Yield:

    cookies

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      In a small bowl, combine the flour and salt and stir together with a fork until blended. Set aside.
    2. 2
      Using an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugar, and beat until just blended, 1-2 minutes. Add the egg and beat until blended about 1 minute more.
    3. 3
      Add the flour mixture, and on low-speed, beat until the mixture just begins to form a sticky dough, about 1 minute more. Turn out onto a floured surface, and gently pat together to form a dense ball of dough. Add cranberries and pistachios and knead gently until evenly combined, and shape into a flat round disk. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill for at least 2 hours.
    4. 4
      Position rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 325°F.
    5. 5
      On a lightly floured surface, roll cookies out to about 1/8 ” thick, and cut to desired shape. Transfer to a heavy - duty cookie sheet and bake until just golden around the edges, 15-18 minutes.

      OUTSTANDING COOKIES, these, & I really enjoyed making them, especially with the combo these berries & nuts! Needless to say, my 'to taste' measurements with the berries & nuts was very generous! I think I got about 40 cookies from the recipe, but can't be sure since some were devoured before I actually got to counting ~ I tried to blame that on someone else, but since I was the only one in the kitchen at the time . . . !
