  • Warm the oven up to 350°F (175°C) and put parchment paper on a baking sheet.
  • Melt the butter and mix it with the white sugar and brown sugar in a large bowl until the mixture is light and fluffy.


  • One at a time, add the eggs and beat well after each one. After that, add the vanilla extract and mix it in well.
  • Add the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt to a different bowl and mix them together using a whisk.


  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients one at a time until a smooth dough forms.
  • The dried cranberries and chopped pistachios should be mixed into the dough until they are spread out evenly.


  • Using a cookie scoop or spoon, put about 2 inches of space between each cookie dough ball on the baking sheet that has been prepared.
  • For a round shape, gently press down on each cookie dough ball with the palm of your hand or the back of a spoon.


  • Place the cookies in an oven that has already been heated. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centres are set.
  • When the cookies are done, take them out of the oven and let them cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet. Then, move them to a wire rack to cool completely.


  • Once all the cookies are baked, do it again with the rest of the cookie dough.
  • When the cookies are cool, put them on a holiday platter and serve them. The sweet, sour, and nutty flavours will go well together.
