Cranberry Pistachio Shortbread

This shortbread is simple to make and tastes great. Of course, it really is loaded with butter, nonetheless, it is Christmas and the month of Sinful Delights right here also !!. Plan ahead if you're likely to bake these because the dough must rest for at least 2 hours in the fridge. That is important as the dough is needed by us to be firm when slicing.

Friends, have an excellent Christmas and revel in the treats. Off to the recipe. Recipe from JoyOfBaking. I halved the initial recipe.
