Cranberry Shortbread 蔓越莓牛油饼干

This was the HOTTEST Chinese New Year cookies in 2016! After reading all the verdicts of those who have tried it, I attempted and tasted it myself. 

Well, I took a piece to try when it's fresh from the oven. Taste awesome! But after cooled, it's just like that blue container - Kjeldsens butter cookies. Perhaps I'm not a fan of plain butter cookies, so it's just an ordinary butter cookie to me, not addictive, not super tasty. I personally prefer cookies loaded with nuts, raisin, berries etc...

However, my family and friends who have tried my cookies, they said 'these cookies are really delicious and addictive!'. I brought back a box for my sister in law to try, she polished off all within few days. After getting all the feedback here and there, I must conclude that these cookies are yummy, if you like butter cookies. 

Do scroll down to the end of this blog post to read the verdicts from home bakers who have tried this recipe. 

Looking at the cookies that I have on the table, 
my son and I still prefer the cute squirrel cookies ;)
