Tasty Recipe - White Chocolate Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

Someone brought these cookies to a Cookie Swap I had a few years ago... I've tweaked the recipe a little, and they are my FAVORITE.  OK, 2nd favorite... nothing is better than my Grandma's Carrot Cookies, but I'll share that recipe some other time.

These are simple to make & are super delicious.

Ingredients: 1 cup butter (VERY soft), 1/2 cup sugar (Splenda is OK), 2 cups flour, 1 tbsp water, 1/3 package white chocolate chips, 1 cup dried cranberries (Craisins)

Beat buttter & sugar until fluffy.  Add water & flour.  Mix until dough is soft.  Stir in chips & cranberries.  Form into balls. I use a tablespoon-size measuring spoon, but you can make them as big or small as you like.

Bake @ 350° for 13-16 minutes, until cookies are very light brown.  Makes about 40 cookies.
