    Cranberry Pistachio Cookies

    For these ornamental cookies, I made a quick sprint of making a basic butter dough and included my favorite dried red cranberries along with chopped pistachios. Believe me, the red cranberries and green pistachios into that yellow buttery dough looked like gems into a gold ornament.

    Every time I bake these cookies, I get mesmerized. I am still trying to figure out whether it is the color, the taste or the aroma that pulls me towards these cookies. You will be surprised to know that you can freeze this cookie dough for up to 3 months.

    You can then enjoy fresh-baked cranberry cookies whenever you want or in a hurry. I generally keep the stock of cookie’s dough in my freezer to treat my guests with baked cranberry pistachio cookies. This idea helps a lot in case of some unexpected guests. No matter whatever the reason is but having cookies dough ready in your freezer is always a good idea.

      • Hello Rekha,
        – For cookies, use the middle rack while baking.
        – If you have a small oven, reduce the temperature a little.
        – Use only bottom rods for baking cookies.

      • Hello Rekha,

        These are dried cranberries. If you feel that the butter has melted in the dough and the dough has become, you may refrigerate the dough for sometime. Also, if you put the dough in refrigerator for sometime, it is only going to make it easier for you to shape it.
