 Recipe from atablefortwo.com.au
 
Ingredients
1 cup plain flour
1/8 tsp salt
112g unsalted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup icing sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/6 cup dried cranberries
1/6 cup green tea powder
 
Method
Add flour and salt into mixing bowl and set aside.
If you are using powder form flavour (eg, Green Tea) for the shortbread, add it in now too.  
Beat the butter and sugar with an electric mixer until smooth, pale and creamy.
Add the vanilla essence and (if using liquid flavour, add it here now) mix until combined then add the flour and cranberry and mix until incorporated.  
Spread the dough between two sheets of cling wrap and roll it out into 0.5cm thickness then transfer to fridge and let it set for at least 2 hours, overnight is best.
Preheat the oven to 180C.  
Take the dough out from the fridge one at a time, let it thaw for 10 minutes, it should be still hard but able to cut through.
Cut into shapes using cookie cutter. 
Tip: Work fast or the dough will be very difficult to remove from the cookie cutter
Place the cookie on baking tray lined baking sheet.
Transfer the cookies to oven and bake for 15-20mins or until a light golden colour.  
Take it out, set a side to cool. Store in air tight container.
