My Mom Susie (her blog is Simply Sated) makes all kinds of amazing holiday baked goods. I’ve posted so many Christmas favorites straight from her kitchen to yours including her Famous Chex Party Mix, Red Velvet Cupcakes, Soft Gingerbread Cookies, Strawberry Shortcake Pie, and more! She is literally the only reason I know how to make ANYTHING in the kitchen, and we are all better because of it. THANK YOU MOM! Today she brought over one of our favorites, Orange Cranberry Shortbread Cookies! They’re a must for the holidays and easy enough we all can make them this Christmas!

Pat knows good and well that he isn’t allowed to eat anything in this house until it’s been photographed. It’s the reason sometimes I cook dinner at 10am and he has to reheat it at 7pm when it’s in shambles after a photo shoot. He knows he’s not to sneak food, ESPECIALLY cookies before I have a chance to get them documented for you.

These are so good that he broke all the rules and ate 4 before I had a chance to take pics. Dog house! He didn’t care because he loves them that much. Again, thank you Mom!

I just love the combination of dried cranberries with the orange zest, touch of salt, and crunchy shortbread. They’re so pretty…even prettier in person. They just scream Christmas to me. The flavors, colors, and overall charm. These make a great homemade present because they keep well, better than most cookies. I’m obsessed…can you tell?

Do me a big favor and hop over to Mom’s site to get this recipe. Every couple weeks I post a recipe that is uniquely hers and I’d love for you to get the recipe from her, not me. I want everyone to know about her awesome site!

(Some people have expressed frustration over me linking to my Mom’s site rather than posting the full recipe here. I usually put the full recipe up (there are over 1000 full recipes on the site), but this recipe was special and is 100% hers, so I wanted to link to her instead so you all could be aware of her awesome blog. Hope you understand! Click either link in the paragraph above for the full recipe)
