    Sugar, chopped pistachios and lemon peel sprinkled on top of these cookies make them extra special. Feel free to use whatever cookie cutters you have on hand.

      This is the BEST cookie I have ever tasted. I did not have lemon extract so I added lime extract and YUMM. I made half the receipe and deceided to add the remainder of the topping straight into the dough. I then took the egg white brushed the cookie and topped with coarse sugar. It was just as great with a different look. This looks like an expensive cookie and tastes like one too.
