Pistachio Cranberry Cookies
Christmas Cookies...Thanksgiving Cookies...whenever you want a cookie cookie...you decide! Either way, they are chewy and soft!
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
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!
