Grinch Cran-Stachio Cookies
This next one comes to you from the OG when it comes to cookies. A name we all know and use in a pinch…And this is just a dressed up version of her cookie mixes….Ladies and Gentlemen, It’s from good ol’ Betty Crocker.
The green and red are perfect for the holidays. The combination of pistachio and cranberry? Another unexpected delicious combo. And once again, another cookie to fly off the platters…
1 (1 lb 1.5 ounce) pouch Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1 box (4 serving size) pistachio instant pudding and pie filling mix
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup dry roasted salted pistachio nuts, chopped
1/2 cup dried cranberries, chopped
optional – green food coloring (I didn’t add any but if you wanted them extra green you could)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl stir cookie mix, unprepared pudding mix, and flour. Add melted butter and eggs and stir until incorporated.
Add pistachios and cranberries and mix well.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet and slightly flatten with fingertips.
Bake for 8-10 minutes. The only way you can ruin these cookies is to overbake them! If you bake them too long you will lose the soft texture and they won’t be as green. They will not look done but take them out and let them sit on the pan for about 2 minutes. Trust me.
Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
