These David’s Cookies Cranberry Pistachio Biscuits are new to Costco for the 2023 holiday season. They come in a festive-looking metal tube. If that’s not enough to convince you to buy them and you want to know more about the cookies inside the tube, you’ve come to the right place!
Other Christmas cookies from Costco are the Kirkland Signature Ginger Cookies, David’s Butter Pecan Meltaways, Kelsen Danish Butter Cookies, Kirkland Signature Walker’s Shortbread, Kirkland Signature European Cookies with Belgian Chocolate, Rondoletti Rolled Wafers, Kirkland Signature Raspberry Crumble Cookies, Pirouline Chocolate Hazelnut Wafers and the Karen’s Bakery Danish Puff Pastries.

These cookies are located in the Christmas seasonal aisle at Costco. The item number is 1746134.
These aren’t amazing but they’re good. They kind of remind me of the Royal Dansk Shortbread cookies but with cranberries and nuts. The biscuits have a bit of sweetness but not a ton.
They aren’t the best shortbread cookie I’ve had. They’re hard and crisp and not very crumbly. They also don’t melt in your mouth. The cranberries and pistachios aren’t really noticeable, the main flavor is coming from the shortbread.
These biscuits cost $6.99 USD or $9.99 Canadian for the 264 gram tube of cookies. The cost isn’t unreasonable and is cheaper than some of the other Christmas cookies Costco is offering.
The packaging is pretty unique! The cookies come in a long tube and then the cookies are packaged in two packs of 11 in the tube. The tin is reuasble but it has the David’s logo, nutrition facts and ingredients all over it. The best before date is five months from the date I purchased it.
Since they come in a nice festive tin they’d make a nice gift for a teacher, daycare worker or colleague. They’d go well with tea or coffee as a mid-morning or afternoon snack! I don’t think kids would love these because they’re not super sweet or flavorful but shortbread fans will enjoy them.
Two cookies contain 120 calories, six grams of fat, 60 milligrams of sodium, 15 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fiber, six grams of sugar and one gram of protein.
That’s not a ton of calories, fat or sugar for two cookies but they’re also not the biggest cookies. In my opinion they’re quite small.
The ingredients are simple which I think is important when you’re buying a pretty plain shortbread cookie like this, a ton of additional preservatives and additives is unnecessary. The main ingredients are flour, pistacios sugar, butter, cranberries, cream, salt and vanilla.
The cookies contain milk, tree nuts, and wheat. They may contain eggs, milk, soy, wheat, peanuts and tree nuts.
Taste: 6.5/10 Not bad just not amazing!
Nutrition: 3/10 I really love the simple, whole ingredients used.
Give it a try!
Both my mom and I thought these were just okay. My mom admitted she was kind of sick of shortbread due to eating a ton of it recently and I admit I’m not the hugest fan of shortbread. I have no complaints about the cookies though, they just wouldn’t be my top choice.
