pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker™ sugar cookie mix
cup butter or margarine, softened
cup dried cherries, coarsely chopped
cup semisweet chocolate chunks
cup salted dry-roasted pistachio nuts, coarsely chopped
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.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks. Cool completely.
