Dried Cranberry Shortbread Cookies

Did you know this about Shortbread Cookies?

“With its origins in a hardened biscuit bread that was common in the Middle Ages, shortbread may have existed as early as the 1100s, though legend gives Mary, Queen of Scots the credit for developing it in the 1500s. She enjoyed eating a traditional form of shortbread called Petticoat Tails, which were triangular wedges cut from the shortbread round, resembling the shape of fabric pieces used to make women’s petticoats in that era.” (Information from ehow.com)
