Cranberry Pistachio Shortbread Cookies

Fruitcake is a deep dark secret delight for many during the holidays.  My parents love it with a little slice of cheese on it. My husband has recently discovered a love of fruitcake (and hence has decided that he was old). Fruitcake is a long standing holiday tradition and this cookie twist is easy to put together and great for cookie exchanges.
