Cranberry-Almond Wedges

Wow, a whole straight week with only one post. Yikes. But like most of you, I’m elbow deep with Thanksgiving prep. Along with that I’m drowning in deadlines. Enough excuses, right?

Okay, well let me share some fun news then. The post today is also being featured on Better Homes and Garden’s new blog Delish Dish, where I am a contributor along with a few other bloggers and some BHG staff. The idea is to have everyday-hands make and attest to BHG’s recipes. And hopefully, we’ll be able to impart some tips, tricks and tweaks along the way.  

To start things off I chose a recipe that not only features one of my favorite seasonal ingredients, but it’s also fast and easy—fitting for a last minute holiday cookie, especially since it’s the Monday before Thanksgiving.

These Cranberry-Almond Wedges take a mere 20 minutes to prep and less than 20 minutes bake. Hit the jump to BHG’s Delish Dish for the recipe and step-by-step pictures.

. . .oh, and yes, I’m finally back on track this week with regular postings.

    These are beautiful cookies. I went to the bhg site for the recipe. Unfortunately your text and photos do not match with the recipe. The bhg recipe mixes the cranberries into the dough and doesn’t use two types of almonds. I’m not sure which version I want to make. Since the bhg recipe makes 2 pans I think I’ll make both.

      Hi Phyllis,

      I added the toasted almonds to step up the flavor, along with that I did tweak their recipe to my methodology and liking. . . so, feel free to play around with it because you can’t go wrong. It’s a fun fast and easy recipe! :)

    Just beautiful – love the lightness of the cake, both in terms of texture and color, contrasted with the cranberries. Perfect!

    Oh congrats on the new gig.
    That sounds like fun; I love those kind of gigs.
    Last weekend hubby & I found a new bakery joint (out of the blue) and they have the best almond filled croissants ever.
    I cannot get that flavor out of my head.
    I love almond filled, almond topped anything.

    This looks yummy. Instead of almonds I will use pecans because I love those. :-)

    Dessert is the usually sweet course that concludes a meal. The food that composes the dessert course includes but is not limited to sweet foods. There is a wide variety of desserts in western cultures now including cakes, cookies, biscuits, gelatins, pastries, ice creams, pies, pudding, and candies. Fruit is also commonly found in dessert courses because of its natural sweetness.;*

    Hi Naomi,

    For some reason I can’t view the link to the recipe anymore – saying that the page is not available. Is there any other way I can obtain the recipe for this. Much appreciated.

    Thank you
