Hey cookie lovers, here's one more scrumptious take on a classic cookie for your holiday cookie tray. I love a rich shortbread cookie to dunk (yes... I'm a card carrying dunker) in my afternoon cuppa. These orange cranberry pistachio ones hit those holiday/winter flavor notes and look all festive-like, speckled with red and green from the cranberries and pistachios.
Instead of rolling them in dyed sanding sugar, I made a cranberry/pistachio sugar by mixing cranberry powder and finely chopped pistachios with organic coconut sugar or cane sugar. The bright red color darkens a bit when baked but still gives a nice -merry- effect.
Again, happy holidays to you all! Wishing you a peaceful celebration, however you may do it, with your loved ones.
