Ingredients list

  • 160 g pistachio flour
  • 10 g pistachios
  • 90 g wheat flour
  • 16 g baking powder
  • 20 g potato starch
  • 1 egg
  • 30 g butter
  • 100 g sugar

Directions

  • First melt the butter over low heat and then allow to cool slightly. Shell and coarsely chop the pistachios.
  • Crack the egg into a bowl and whisk with a fork. Now add the sugar and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy. Pour in the melted butter and continue beating on low speed.
  • Then add the pistachio flour and mix gently with a dough scraper. Now add the wheat flour, potato starch, baking powder and chopped pistachio pieces and continue mixing until the dough reaches a firm consistency.
  • Now continue to knead with your hands and form an elongated loaf. Then wrap with plastic wrap and put in the refrigerator for an hour.
  • After the cooling time, preheat the oven to 360°F/180°C top/bottom heat.
  • Prepare a baking tray lined with baking paper. Put the dough on a floured work surface and cut small pieces of dough of about 1½oz / 40g. Now form the individual pieces of dough into small balls. Then carefully flatten them by hand and shape them into a circle.
  • Spread the cookies evenly on the tray with enough space between them and bake for about 15 minutes in the preheated oven on the middle shelf.
  • Finally, remove, let cool to room temperature and enjoy.
  • Buon appetito!
