  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Lightly butter a large baking sheet or line with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking soda, and baking powder.
  3. In a medium bowl lightly beat the eggs, then the vanilla extract.
  4. Now mix wet and dry ingredients together to form a dough.
  5. Coat your hands with oil and add the cranberries and pistachios blending them into the dough by hand.
  6. On the baking sheet make 3 x 6-8" long logs that are about 2" in diameter.
  7. Bake at 350°F for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove logs from oven and with a serrated knife cut the logs into diagonal 1/2-1" slices and place them back on the baking tray cut side up. Bake another 5-7 minutes till lightly golden. Transfer onto a cooling rack.
