Recipe by MA HIKER
A nice tasty shortbread sprinkled with chopped pistachios, yummy! And these are so easy! Take the butter out of your fridge the night before so it nicely softens. I make the dough in my kitchenaide mixer which works great and makes it so easy.
- 1 1⁄2 cups butter, softened (3 sticks)
- 3⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup pistachio nut, chopped
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
