Award winning and super easy cookies that your family will love, might even repost this one with a list of other cookie ideas for December. These would be fun to do a cookie exchange with too.
What you will need:
1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
1 cup semisweet chocolate chunks
1 cup salted dry-roasted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
How to make them:
1. Heat oven to 375°F. In large bowl, stir cookie mix, butter and egg until soft dough forms. Stir in cherries, chocolate chunks and nuts.
2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls (or use level 3 tablespoon-size scoop) about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
Note: egg can be replaced with 2 Tbsp of potato starch
