Orange Cranberry Shortbread Sammies

Orange Cranberry Shortbread Sammies


Rich Alden’s Organic Chocolate ice cream sandwiched between zesty orange and tart cranberry shortbread cookies.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • ½ cup dried cranberries, chopped
  • 1 Sqround (48oz) Alden’s Organic Chocolate


  1. In a stand mixer, cream together butter, sugar, and orange zest for 1-2 minutes. Add flour, salt, and dried cranberries, then mix until combined and dough begins pulling away from the sides of the mixer. 
  2. Place a piece of parchment paper under the dough and another piece on top of it. Roll out the cookie dough until it’s about ¼ inch thick. Place on a baking pan and cover, then chill overnight.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F. While the oven is preheating, cut dough into your desired shape using a cookie cutter. Bake for 15-18 minutes or until the outer edges are slightly brown, then allow cookies to cool completely. 
  4. Place a scoop of Alden’s Organic Chocolate ice cream between two cookies.
  5. Enjoy!
