  3. Combine flour and remaining sugar in a large bowl.
  4. Use a pastry cutter to cut in butter. You want very fine crumbs.
  5. Stir in extract cranberries and sugar mixture orange zest and orange juice (optional).
  6. Use your hands to knead the dough until it comes together and forms a ball. Work the dough until it comes together.

  12. Let cookies cool for several minutes on baking sheet before removing to cooling rack. Let cool completely.
  13. Store in airtight container for 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
