The easiest to prepare, delicious, fragrant, beautiful cookies with a minimum of ingredients. A great dessert option for cozy home New Year's tea parties. And, perhaps, for someone important - baking without eggs.
We get the butter in advance, about 1 hour in advance, it should be cold, but not ice cream. In the bowl of a food processor, put butter, flour, almond flour, powdered sugar, salt. Mix (chop) with knives.
I used a food processor. At a speed of "1" in a matter of seconds, the oil is crushed and everything is mixed. Add ice water.
Turn on the knives again. If you follow the recipe, the dough should gather into a ball.
It turns out an elastic dough. Put it in a bag and put it in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Take the dough out of the refrigerator, divide it in half for convenience, put the second part back in the refrigerator. Roll out with a rolling pin into a layer 5 mm thick. with the help of cuttings, we make round blanks for cookies. Make a hole in the middle. You can use glasses, binoculars.
It seemed to me that the holes were large, and in the second batch I made holes in the shape of "hearts". We do not roll out the cut dough, but bake it too. Since the dough becomes warmer when re-rolling, the structure changes. Place the cookie blanks on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Slice the dried cranberries. Chop the nuts. In the original recipe with pistachios, I have cashew nuts. Nuts can be crushed simply with a rolling pin.
Sprinkle the cookie blanks with cranberries and nuts, press them lightly so that they do not crumble. Put in a preheated 190 degree oven, bake until golden brown for 15-20 minutes.
