Cranberry Pistachio Pudding Cookies

This is seriously my first ever pudding cookie.

And um, what the heck was I waiting for!? The adding pudding makes for one yummy soft cookie.

I can't wait to try other pudding cookies in the future!

But for now, let's talk pistachio pudding cookies.

These cookies have a great hint of pistachio flavor paired with tangy cranberries.

I also love the added green color it gives!

Here's what you need:
(makes about 2 dozen cookies)
1 (1 pound 1.5 ounce) package Sugar Cookie Mix
1 (4 serving) box of instant pistachio pudding mix
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup (1 stick) melted butter
2 eggs
1 cup dry roasted pistachios, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries

*You can also add 1/3 cup of white chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
In a large bowl,whisk together the sugar cookie mix, pudding mix, and flour. Stir in the melted butter and eggs until a soft dough forms. Add pistachios, cranberries, and chocolate chips if using. Mix to incorporate.

Scoop 1-2 Tablespoon size scoops of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with fingers.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the bottoms are golden.
Cool completely on a wire rack and store tightly covered at room temp.

Enjoy these festive cookies!
