Skip the Thanksgiving pie this year and whip up this easy Amaretto Cranberry Shortbread Slices studded with fresh cranberries and scented with amaretto liquor instead.
This post is part six of a six part series on Hosting a Vegetarian Thanksgiving. Please visit post one for the full menu and tips a hosting your own meat-free holiday.
And just like that, we are already at the last part of this month long Thanksgiving series! With Thanksgiving approaching in just a few days, I’m going to bet you probably already have most of your menu picked out. With that being said, I’m going to go ahead and throw one last recipe in front of you in case you may need another dessert idea: Amaretto Cranberry Shortbread Slices.
I know what you are thinking…cookies…for Thanksgiving? Wait, hear me out! Pies are the usual go-to but they can also be insanely time consuming and rather difficult to get right (soggy pie? Been there. Shrunken pie crust? done that). You are already having to worrying about 10 billion other kitchen things (okay, maybe an exaggeration but close) on Thursday, why add another huge project to the list? These cranberry shortbread slices take no time at all to make are just as festive with their cranberry sauce and candied cranberry topping.
