ingredients for goat cheese cranberry cookies

8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 (8-ounce) goat cheese, softened
1 egg
2 cups all-purpose or whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup dried cranberries

cranberries and goat cheese cookies
Roll 1 to 2 tablespoons of dough into balls and arrange 2 inches apart on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet.
forked goat cheese cookie
Use a fork dipped in water to flatten each cookie. If you want a clean imprint, you'll probably need to repeatedly warm the fork under hot water. This is one of the most challenging steps of the recipe.
Bake until just firm and deep golden on the bottom, about 15 minutes.
