Red meets green in these festive Cherry Christmas Refrigerator Cookies, sometimes called Pistachio Cherry Refrigerator Cookies thanks to the pistachio pudding mix that’s added to the cookie dough.

They’re one type of refrigerator cookies – also known as icebox cookies or slice-and-bake cookies – that you shape into logs, wrap in waxed paper or plastic, chill, and then cut into cookies for baking.

Refrigerator cookies are timesavers! The dough is ready in the fridge when you want to make a few fresh cookies at a moment’s notice. Just chill, slice, and bake when it’s convenient for you or when company’s coming. Perfect for the holidays. And pretty, too.
