Cookies with pistachios and dried cranberries. Got raw shelled pistachios. Do I use "as is" or kind of roast them myself?

Hello --

Picked up everything for my remaining holiday treats. My coop had beautiful shelled raw pistachios. I didn't find any roasted ones.

So I got the raw ones.

Should I use "as is" or toast myself before using?

I'm inclined to use them as is.

That's probably what I did last time because I would have gotten them at the same place.

Also, the cookies are slice and bake (rolled in coarse sugar first -- really pretty). I'm thinking the raw ones may slice easier than crunchier ones.

Thoughts?
