  • 17.5 oz Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
  • 3.4 oz pistachio instant pudding and pie filling mix
  • ¼ c flour
  • ½ c butter melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 c dry roasted salted pistachio nuts chopped (I buy the unshelled ones - so much easier!)
  • ½ c dried cranberries chopped


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl stir cookie mix, unprepared pudding mix, and flour.
  • Add melted butter and eggs and stir until mixed.
  • Add pistachios and cranberries and mix well.
  • Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. (I use my cookie scoop!)
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes. DO NOT OVER BAKE. They won't be as green.
  • They won't look done but take them out and let them sit.
  • Cool on a wire rack and serve.
