Cranberry Pistachio Shortbread Cookies

These cookies my sister and I came up with over the phone. She helped me decide all the ingredients.  I wanted some ideas for making up cookies. She wanted pistachios in them. I suggested cherries or cranberries with it and she said cranberry. Next came deciding the dough, I thought a shortbread would be awesome. So here it is.
