Pistachio baked goods very popular in the Middle East and recently the flavour is becoming quite trendy in boutique cafes around Central London.
I popped down to Palmers Green N13, and came across a pistachio paste by Anthap UK. This paste is perfect for cookies, rich in flavour and not overly sweet.
I tried to make these cookies with the most minimal ingredients and without any green food colouring. The colour you see is from the pistachio paste and nothing else.
More about the ingredients:
Pistachio paste – You can use any pistachio paste which has a moist texture enough to bind with flour.
Caster sugar – I used a little amount enough to add a very slight sweetness. Eliminate this if you want to avoid sugar.
Dark chocolate – I used dark chocolate becuase it compliments the pistachio flavour well. This is optional to add but it does give a nice flavour.
Pistachios – I used for decorating (optional)
These cookies bake in 12 minutes, crunchy on the outside and flavourful in the inside. Pairs well with a hot cuppa.
This recipe makes medium 15-20 cookies.
Are you a fan of pistachios and it’s flavour?
