Italian Cuisine/authentic pistachio cookies
I saw deliscious pistachio cookies chewy on an italian
web site but they were selling them. I am looking for a
recipe that's origonal not with american pistachio
Sorry for getting back to this question so late, I was not receiving all experts advisory notices in a timely fashion so I do apologize.
I have recipe for you - taken from a cook book that a friends' mother gave me many years ago, I have never made them but she used to and they were delicious!!
Ingredients for 15 soft pistachio cookies:
100 gr of shelled unsalted pistachio's or pistachio flour
70 gr of peeled almonds
100 gr of sugar
1 egg yolk
1 pinch of baking soda
icing sugar to sprinkle after they are baked
Place in a food processor the pistachio's and almonds and reduce to a flour like consistency
Put the flour into a bowl and add the sugar, the baking soda (just a pinch) and the egg yolk.
Start to kneed the cookie dough, you will get a very sticky dough, add a little flour to your hands to help!
Once it is all well mixed, start making little balls of dough, you should get around 12-15. Place them on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.
If need be - use a little more flour to help rolls the balls as they are very sticky.
Place in a preheated oven 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
The cookies when done will appear crunchy on the outside but lovely and chewy on the inside!
Good Luck and Happy Baking!
