  • Combine flour and baking soda. Beat cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla in large bowl with mixer until blended. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Refrigerate 30 min.
  • Meanwhile, place cranberries in small bowl; add enough boiling water to cover. Let stand 10 min. or until cranberries are softened; drain.
  • Divide dough in half. Place 1 half between 2 lightly floured sheets of waxed paper; roll into 9-inch square. Repeat with remaining dough to make second square.
  • Remove top sheet of waxed paper from 1 dough square. Spread half the preserves over dough to within 1/2 inch of edges. Top evenly with half each of the cranberries and nuts. Roll up, starting at one side of dough and using bottom sheet of waxed paper to help roll dough up. Wrap in plastic wrap. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Freeze logs 2 hours.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Unwrap logs. Cut each log into 18 slices. Place, 2 inches apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets.
  • Bake 12 to 14 min. or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.

Special Equipment Needed

Make Ahead

How to Cut the Cookie Dough Logs into Even Slices

Cut each log of dough into 3 pieces; cut each piece in half, then cut each half into thirds. (You should have 18 slices.) Repeat with remaining log of dough.
