Cranberry Pistachio Cookies

For these ornamental cookies, I made a quick sprint of making a basic butter dough and included my favorite dried red cranberries along with chopped pistachios. Believe me, the red cranberries and green pistachios into that yellow buttery dough looked like gems into a gold ornament.

  1. Mam I tried these cookies but my cookies burnt from down though I placed them on parchment paper.this has happened with me before also when I baked naan khatai.should both upper nd lower rods to b ON mode.

    • Hello Rekha,
      – For cookies, use the middle rack while baking.
      – If you have a small oven, reduce the temperature a little.
      – Use only bottom rods for baking cookies.

    • Hello Rekha,

      These are dried cranberries. If you feel that the butter has melted in the dough and the dough has become, you may refrigerate the dough for sometime. Also, if you put the dough in refrigerator for sometime, it is only going to make it easier for you to shape it.
