Cranberry Rosemary Thumbprint Cookies

Hearst Truvia C121961 Edit

When it comes to Thanksgiving, cranberry is one of my favorite ingredients. It's super tart on its own, but sweeten it just right and you've got a winner on your hands. Instead of using store-bought cranberry jelly, which can come packed with lots of high fructose corn syrup, we make our own reduced-sugar version with Truvia Sweet Complete Granulated All-Purpose sweetener for a proper pucker. To add even more festivity to this thumbprint cookie, we speckle the dough with finely chopped rosemary—and it tastes just as good as it looks.

    Make cranberry jam: In a small pot over medium heat, combine cranberries, sweetener, water, salt, and orange zest. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until berries have burst and sauce is shiny and thickened, 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from heat and use a wooden spoon to stir and crush cranberries until mixture is mostly smooth. Let cool.
