Total Time 30 minutes
Servings 2 dozen


  • 1 stick (8 Tbsp.) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar I use 1/2 dark brown, 1/2 white, granulated
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup All-Purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup pistachios, shelled & roughly chopped
  • 1 cup dried cranberries
  • PAM


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Grease 2 cookie sheets and set aside. Or use a silpat.
  • Using a stand or hand mixer, mix softened butter and sugar(s) for ~2 minutes, or until mixed together well. Then mix in the egg and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the next 5 ingredients. Pour the butter/sugar mixture into the dry ingredients and mix well. Then fold in the remaining 3 ingredients. Note: the mixture may seem crumbly, but once you form them into cookies and press the dough together it is fine!
  • Roll cookies into the size you want (I do about 2 Tbsp.) and place on the greased cookie sheets. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Enjoy!
