Eggless Pistachio Cookies

Happy New Year to all.

On the occasion of new year I'm sharing this borrowed recipe from Food Network magazine.This is a eggless recipe with a crunchy & crispy texture. You can also feel pistachio's in every bite & the best part is you can replace pistachio's with your favorite nut.

Yields : 20 Cookies
3/4 Cup + 2Tbs all purpose flour
2/3 Cup unsalted pistachios 
1 Tsp baking powder
1/2 Cup icing sugar
1/2 Tsp salt
1/2 Cup butter at room temperature 
1 Tsp vanilla extract

Preheat oven @350degrees. On a baking sheet spread the pistachios & bake them for 10 to 12 mins. Now remove them from oven & you can smell the aroma of roasted nuts. Allow them to cool. Sift all purpose flour,baking powder & salt in a bowl. Grind nuts & 2 tbs all purpose flour to a smooth powder.
In a big bowl beat sugar, butter & vanilla extract until light & fluffy.Now mix the dry ingredients with butter mix & to that add the nut powder & roll it to a rectangular shape.
Cover this dough in a plastic wrap & to make it firm  refrigerate it for at least 2hrs or whole night.

Preheat oven @350degrees. Mean while line your baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough in between 2 pieces of parchment paper & cut it using a shape as you want. 
Now line the cookies on prepared baking sheets. Bake them for 10 to 12 mins until golden brown.
Cool them for 3 mins on baking sheets & move them on to a rack to cool further.

Serve them with milk, coffee or tea. They are just yum.

1.You can replace pistachio with any other nut.
2. I refrigerated the for 2 hrs & it was nice enough to handle. 
Or you can just sprinkle a little flour & roll.
