I made these with double the pistachios and no cranberries - a definite yum! I will be making these again - SO EASY. The variations on this are endless - different flavors of pudding mix, different nuts/fruit. I plan to do lots of experimenting - I'll post again if I come up with anything unusually good. Great texture - not too hard. Thanks for posting!!
