READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by wicked cook 46

From Robinhood flour Posting for safe keeping. This makes alot of cookies DOUGH NEEDS CHILLED OVERNIGHT and is not included in prep time TIP: Plastic wrap boxes work well for shaping square cookies. 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. TIP # 2 Rolls in refrigerator for 3 months or freezer for 6 months

Really enjoyed these cookies! They are delicious and the colors are perfect for Christmas. The sweet cranberries work wonderfully with the pistachios. Will make again!
