Pistachio-Cranberry Christmas Cookies

December 10, 2012

These are actually my new go-to Christmas cookies. I’ve lost count of how many batches I’ve made.

I have way too many leftover odds and ends from CK’s birthday last Saturday taking up space in the refrigerator so I’ve spent this week trying very hard to not let them go to waste.

You know those times when you’re in the grocery store and you’re absolutely starving, and against your better judgment you end up filling your cart with all sorts of absurd things that you wouldn’t normally buy?
