These Christmas thumbprint cookies are all decked out in red and green! Rich cream cheese dough is coated in crunchy pistachios and crowned with a jammy dollop of tangy cranberry compote.
Simmer the cranberries, sugar, and water in a small pot for 15 minutes, or until the berries have burst and the sauce is slightly thickened.
Place on parchment lined baking sheets and use a ¼ teaspoon measure to press a deep well into the center of each ball.
Fill the well with a small amount of the cooled cranberry mixture, and bake for 12 minutes.
