A cookie for pistachio lovers, with a bit of a twist since it’s sprinkled with sea salt. They’re called pistachio pudding cookies, but there’s no actual pudding in them, only pudding powder in the dough. Pistachio pudding powder isn’t easily available in The Netherlands, but luckily I could buy it when we were in Germany. We usually visit Germany a few times a year, since it’s close by and we have family there.
For these cookies I used a recipe from Chocolate, chocolate and more, a lot of great recipes are on this blog. We liked these cookies so much, that I’m also selling them on my sales page. They’re not the only cookies on there, the others you can find on this overview blog.
The cookies had to bake 20 minutes instead of the 10-12 minutes mentioned in the recipe. For the brown sugar, I used cane sugar. Wasn’t in the recipe, but I chilled the dough and this worked out good.
Looking for more cookies with pistachios, these pistachio macarons are also divine.
