  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
  3. Drop mixture onto the parchment covered cookie sheets by teaspoonfuls, leaving 2 inches between cookies. Dip a fork into lukewarm water and use the back of the tines to flaten the cookies into rounds about 2 inches across.

  5. * - I used salted pistachios and they still came out money.
  6. ** - Oven times may vary. When I made this at my Mema's house this past week for the holidays, it took 15 min, not 12.
I made these for Christmas Eve this year, and I have to say they were money! I got the recipe from a Gale Gand cookbook I bought myself last week. Four ingredients. Very simple.
