DIRECTIONS

  • Pulse pistachios and sugar together in a food processor until nuts are finely chopped (but not ground), then stir together with remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl to make a dough.
  • Spread the dough in a 12 inch long strip on a large sheet of plastice wrap and, starting with a long side, roll up dough in the plastic wrap (dough will be very soft). Chill dough on a baking sheet until firm but still malleable, about 1 hour.
  • Roll dough into a 15 X 1 inch log, using the plastic wrap as an aid. Halve the log crosswise and chill halves, wrapped in plastic wrap until they are firm, about 3 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 325°F
  • Cut 1 log crosswise into 1/8 inch thick slices with a serrated knife and arrange cookies, about 2 inches apart on 2 parchment lined large baking sheets.
  • Flatten each cookie into a 1 1/2 inch round with the back of a fork, dipping the fork in water and shaking off the excess water for each cookie.
  • Bake in upper and lower thirds of oven, switching position of the sheets halfway through baking, until golden, approximately 8 to 10 minutes total.
  • Cool cookies on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer with a metal spatula to racks to cool completely.
  • Make more cookies with remaining dough on cooled baking sheets lined with clean parchment.
