- 1 1/2 cups + 6 tablespoons flour
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup butter
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup chopped fresh cranberries
- 1/2 cup chopped pistachios
- 1 tablespoon chopped crystallized ginger
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
In the bowl of a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, and beat until well combined.
Gradually add the flour and mix on lowest speed until just blended.
Mix in the cranberries, pistachios and crystallized ginger until thoroughly combined.
On a clean, lightly floured work surface, roll the dough into two logs about 1 1/2 to 2-inches in diameter.
Wrap both logs in plastic wrap and chill for several hours in refrigerator until firm.
When ready to bake, preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Cut into slices about 1/4-inch thick and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment.
Bake for 10 minutes, until firm, but not browned.
