Pistachio lovers unite!
This cookie is for you. A variation on the traditional macaron. This one not only has almonds in the dough, but pistachios as well. It’s a single macaron, not two macarons with filling in between. The cookie is gluten and wheat free, so suited for lots of people. Pistachio macarons are for the true Pistachio lover.
Pistachios aren’t safe in our house, if we have them there are 2 men that will eat them all. So I have to specifically say that they’re for a recipe, and then they’ll leave them alone. We tested this recipe to see if it was suited for selling, and it is. So if you want to buy this cookie, you can do that here. The recipe comes from the cookbook “500 koekjes” from Philippa Vanstone. So many great cookie recipes in this one.
Another pistachio cookie, which we loved is the Salted Pistachio Pudding Cookie. Also a cookie that I sell in the shop, an overview of all the cookies I sell and how I send them is in this blog. Still searching for another cookie recipe, try out chocolate Easter nests. When looking for a healthy, but simple breakfast with nuts in it: Breakfast Mug Cake. If you want to make more than just cookies for Christmas, try a Kerststol.
The cookie is delicious. I had to make some changes to the recipe. It said 175°C, my oven doesn’t have that grade, so I chose 180°C. I didn’t have rice paper, so I used baking paper. You had to pipe the macarons, but the dough is too thick to pipe. So I just scooped them. The recipe said 8 to 10 minutes in the oven, but 16 minutes was needed.
