"A crisp, buttery cookie studded with pistachios and served with Ice-cream!"

That sums up this gorgeous combo, I am at a loss of words to describe the flavors , but they are so unique and delicious that you gotta HAVE IT TO BELIEVE IT!

All in all -highly recommended! have with Ice-cream(use flavor of choice-here I used store bought Cookies-and-cream ). The cookies are irresistible enough on their own, dip-dip-dip  them into garam masala chai and enjoy!


                    Pistachio Cookies with Ice Cream


  • Butter- 1/2 cup
  • Confectioner's sugar- 3/4 cup
  • Egg- 1/2
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tsp.
  • All purpose Flour- 1 1/2 cups
  • Baking soda- 1/2 tsp.
  • Cream of tartar- 1/2 tsp.
  • Salt- 1/4 tsp
  • Pistachios- 1/4 cup (whole, unsalted)

Cream the butter in a large mixing bowl, gradually add the sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture.
Shape the dough into one of the following ways:

Roll out the chilled dough and cut with cookie cutters.
OR: This is what I did- Form dough into logs 2 inches in diameter flatten into a squarish shape and slice 1/8 inch thick WITH A VERY SHARP KNIFE  when chilled ,bake for 7 to 9 minutes

I am so glad I found your blog. I was in India recently and spent a few days in Kashmir. I must've taken part in a wedding wazwan, because the meal my host invited me to sounded just like what you described! I am looking for recipes from that meal, so I will go through your older posts.
