Pistachio - Cardamom Cookies

The moment I saw these yummy treats on Ramya's Blog, my heart gave a happy flip! I knew they were coming to my hearth very soon. My viral infection delayed their arrival but the wait was well worth it ! The cookies are indeed melt-in-the mouth delights. A small healthy twist to the recipe was needed as I ran short of all purpose flour ; whole wheat flour substituted just fine and gave its own taste to the cookies.




What Goes:- (yield - 12 medium sized cookies)
  • Whole wheat Flour - 140 grams 
  • Rice flour - 30 grams
  • Butter softened - 125 grams
  • Icing Sugar - 40 grams
  • Vanilla extract - 1/2 tbsp
  • Green Pistachios - 30 grams
  • Cardamoms - 4 pods
Here's How:-

Preheat the oven to 160 C.
Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla in a medium sized bowl until pale and fluffy.
Sift in the flour together into butter mixture. Pulse the pistachios and cardamom in a blender  for a few seconds.Tip them to the creamed flour mix and form a soft dough.




Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.Remove the mixture from the refrigerator, take small quantity of dough and shape them into balls, flatten into rounds and place it in a baking tray.
Bake it for 15-20 minutes until the sides start to turn golden.




Allow to cool on wire racks..and enjoy the rocking delights!
