This month, for our book club meeting, we decided to have a cookies party where we each have to bring our favorite Holiday cookies. I made my Cranberries pistachio cookies.
They are perfect for the whole holiday season. My younger daughter and I loved having them with tea or chocolate while enjoying Christmas movies. The ladies at the book club enjoyed them and I could not help sharing with you.
I hope you take the time to create memories with your loved ones for the holidays. Remember the cookies are on me. Here is the recipe.
Dried Cranberries and Pistachio cookies
½ cup dried cranberries
½ cup pistachio
1 ½ cups All-purpose flour
½ cup of unsalted butter softened at room temperature
1/3 cup of granulated sugar
1/3 cup of brown sugar
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp of salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
Zest of 1 orange
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Line the baking sheets with parchment paper and set them aside
Combine together the flour, salt, and baking soda and set them aside
Using the mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars.
In another bowl, mix the egg, orange zest, and vanilla extract. Add to the butter mixture and mix well until they are well combined.
Add the flour mixture to the cream and mix just to combine. Then add the dried cranberries, the pistachio, and mix just to distribute them through the batter.
Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until they are golden brown around the edges.
Remove from oven, sprinkle with red and green sugar, then place on a wire rack to cool.
