Cranberry Pistachio Cookies!

Hey friends!!

First off — my Patreon video is UP! The questions from this week were:
What’s a blogger’s daily routine?
Faith in Hard Times.
And binge eating in recovery!
Check it out here!

It’s official. We’ve entered…PICNIC SEASON!

Yep, every spring one of my all time favorite things to do is to pack a lunch, head to the river and have a picnic in the park with my friends. It’s so beautiful, it’s so fun, AND I get to shower my friends with some yummy homemade treats!

Like these little delightful goodies!

You ready for the easiest directions ever?!? THROW EVERYTHING IN THE FOOD PROCESSOR AND BLITZ THEM UP!! That’s it!! Let it run for about 1-2 minutes until a ball forms. Then, roll roughly a Tbsp of the dough into a ball, and then roll in the chopped pistachios and cranberries. Chill for at least an hour…or dig in right away if you can’t resist!

How amazing were these cookies…let me count thy ways! They were wonderfully chewy, with a nice crunch from the chopped pistachio coating. They were sweet and nutty with a slight tang from the cranberries! They were absolutely wonderful!

And so pretty too! The red and green made these so whimsical and fun! They looked like they were “bejeweled” or “bedazzled!” They’d be great for Christmas too!

They were gone before I could give any away to my friends or doormen! Oops! Looks like I’ll be making another batch this weekend!

    • Hey thanks so much Mitch! They really were – i love the flavor combo! hugs xox

    • Thank you so much!!! Yes! me too – they’re the best nut if you ask me!!! 🙂 Hope you enjoy!! 🙂 hugs xo

  1. I’m praying for great success for you so I have a suggestion. I know you have an expanding reach but here’s another idea.

    Try the new site Parler. It’s a conservative alternative to Twitter. The people are very engaged and I think you’ll find another very welcoming audience for your platform. It’s new but looks like it will grow quickly.

    Oh, and the cranberry cookies look spectacular

    • oh thank you so much! and interesting! i’ll have to check it out!! thanks for the recco!! 🙂 hugs xo

  2. I thought you were livening a good life. Now this? Just the picture has me at 3 of the seven deadlies. Anything with cranberries tempts me beyond what I can bear.

    • Haha thanks Jim! Yeah these are definitely delicious little bites! I love the cran/pistachio combo! Hugs and love xox

  3. This is my kind of recipe. “Throw it in a blitz it up” gave me a good chuckle. You can form one into the shape of a little person and call it “Augustine of Cran(ter)-berry”. Are you planning (or have you already) compiled these weekly recipe posts into a cookbook?

    • Thanks so much Scoot! Hahaha cranterberry!! That’s hysterical!! Oh gosh you’re nice to say that – we’ll see!! 🙂 thanks for the encouragement! Hugs and love xox

  4. Those look so yummy and gluten free. Yea!! Thank you and may God bless you for always giving him all the Glory. What an amazing spirit you have my sister. Love Joni
