Pistachio cranberry cookies

First post of the year! I’ve actually made these cookies last year during Christmas but I didn’t have the time to post it. It’s really easy to make cookies because all you need is a good simple cookie dough recipe and then you can add whatever ingredients you want into it. Since I was feeling rather fancy over christmas, I’ve decided to make some pistachio and cranberry cookies.
