Pistachio Christmas Cookies
with White Chocolate and Cherries
These white chocolate cherry pistachio cookies are great Christmas cookies, but I would be happy to eat them anytime of the year.
This is a shortbread cookie with a whole lot of extras mixed in, so each bite is filled with flavor.
I love the texture and simplicity of shortbread, so am happy I get all that even with the extra mix ins.
The cookies have a generous amount of white chocolate morsels, chopped dried cherries and unsalted pistachios, which go together perfectly.
You can use any type of cookie cutter shapes that you’d like, depending upon the occasion.
Or you can simply cut out squares or rectangles with a knife, when you have rolled out the dough.
Eat all the cookies yourself or pack them up to give as a gift, take to a party or sell at a bake sale.
