  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 3/4 cups raw, shelled and unsalted pistachios, finely ground in a food processor (scant 2 cups ground)
  • 3/4 pound (3 sticks) butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg

Directions

  • Heat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, salt and baking powder, then add the ground pistachios and set aside.
  • Using an electric mixer with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla until the mixture becomes pale yellow and creamy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add the egg and continue to mix. The batter should be very light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture all at once and mix just to incorporate.
  • Fill a pastry bag fitted with a large star tip, pipe the dough into small rosettes onto parchment-lined baking sheets.
  • Bake until lightly golden and just lightly browned around the edges, about 14 to 15 minutes. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Notes

These are perfect for your Christmas Cookie Platter.
