Line box with plastic wrap and pack dough firmly inside. Wash and dry frozen juice containers and fill with dough for perfectly round cookies. Simply remove bottom of containers and push out the chilled dough. Also, as a substitute for the cranberries and the pistachios, use any combination of your favourite dried fruit and nuts.

I made these over the weekend and they are delicious! I used dried cherries and chocolate chunks for my mix-ins! I was going for a Cherries Jubilee type cookie and this delivered! Thanks so much! :) [Made for Newest Zaar Tag]
