White Chocolate and Pistachio Cookies…

“There are four basic food groups:

plain chocolate, milk chocolate,

dark chocolate and white chocolate.”

~ Jill Shalvis

Let’s start in reverse order!

Actually, white chocolate is my husband’s favourite,

so these cookies are an indulgent treat for him ย ๐Ÿ˜‹

ย Let’s chip this chocolate…no nibbling mind!

In go theย pistachios, chocolate, then mix to make cookie dough.

Method:

  1. Preheat your oven to 180ยฐC/350ยฐF/gas mark 4.
  2. Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla.
  3. Beat in the egg, followed by the flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Mix till just combined so as not to overwork the dough. Stir through the nuts and chocolate.
  5. Roll into golf-ball size rounds and place on a baking tray. Flatten slightly with your hand. Remember to leave plenty of room between them as they will spread.
  6. Bake for 15-16 minutes until just slightly golden around the edges.
  7. Cool on a wire rack. 

Roll, flatten, bake and cool on a wire tray.

  1. It’s always nice to have that time to relax and if cooking amkes you happy then keep on doing it sister. We would really like to have the opportunity of you reviewing a few of our stories at Gastradamus. If you have the chance, then please let us know what you think of the bald and the brestless and why people with less makeup are more enjoyable to snuggle with. They are very inspiring pieces of literature.
