Cranberry-Orange Swirl Cookies

Cranberry-Orange Swirl Cookies
Total Time:
about 3 hours
Active Time:
40 minutes


1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup Deli cranberry-orange relish, drained and divided
1 orange, for zest
1 1/2 cups sugar (plus more for dusting)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs (or 1/2 cup egg substitute)
3 cups flour
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Plastic wrap
Nonstick aluminum foil


  • Set butter out to soften.
  • Drain cranberry relish. Zest orange (1 tablespoon).


  1. Place butter and sugar in large bowl; beat with electric mixer until fluffy and combined. Beat in vanilla, eggs, and zest until combined; mix in flour, salt, and baking powder until dough is formed. Divide dough into 2 discs; wrap each with plastic wrap and chill 1 hour.
  2. Dust flat surface with additional sugar to keep dough from sticking, then place 1 disc of dough on surface. Roll into a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle (sprinkling with more sugar as needed if dough begins to stick). Spread 1/2 cup cranberry relish over dough, leaving a 1/2-inch border. Roll dough carefully around filling, starting on one long end and pressing together slightly, to form a log.
  3. Repeat step 2 with remaining dough and cranberry relish. Freeze dough logs 1 hour (or overnight) until firm.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with foil. Cut dough into 1/2-inch-thick cookies using a serrated knife, and place on prepared baking sheets 2 inches apart; bake 12–15 minutes or until slightly puffed and lightly golden around the edges. Cool 2–3 minutes on baking sheets before transferring to cooling rack. Cool completely before serving.
