Pistachio and white chocolate cookies

Today sforniamo pistachio and white chocolate biscuits, Since the weather is no longer so hot? These are easy easy and crispy and made even more greedy by a simple addition of melted white chocolate. If you want, You can replace the flour with almonds or pistachio nuts, using the same doses, and make cookies with dried fruits that you like best. I'm sicula, and I love the pistachio! Are cookies ' one leads to another ', or so have them defined in family and are a little special attention that you can offer your guests, and I would even say to you and just, with coffee or breakfast. Indeed, If you have children I'm sure prepare them together even more fun!

Ingredients for about 20 biscuits:

  • 80 grams of pistachio flour
  • 120 grams of flour 00
  • 100 grams caster sugar
  • 120 grams soft butter
  • a teaspoon of organic Bourbon vanilla extract
  • a large pinch of salt
  • 100 grams of white chocolate
  • chopped pistachios as required (I used pistachios di Stigliano)

Here is the world's shortest recipe: knead all the ingredients together until you get a homogeneous dough and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firming, at least 1-2 hours. Then sprinkle the work surface with a little’ flour and, using a rolling pin, pull the dough to about a centimeter thick. Gain from browse many biscuits and place them on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.

Store cookies again in the fridge for at least an hour (best two or three, especially if your kitchen is very hot, so that the dough is rassodi fine), then bake at 170 degrees in a convection oven for about 15 minutes or until the cookies are golden brown not.

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack. Meanwhile, coarsely chopped white chocolate in a double boiler and melt gocciolarlo flush (I used just a teaspoon) about cookies. Complete with the chopped pistachios and serve after the chocolate will again be firm. Bon appétit!

Then, If you have expanded a bit to keep the pastry still for a little while in the refrigerator. Unfortunately one leads to another and also I always do the half dose, otherwise you're in trouble. A hug, ADA

Hello, At last i made cookies with Pistachio powder I had bought in Sicily. I followed the instructions, Although I was a little’ dubious about the absence of eggs in the ingredient list.
I'm used’ success that, during cooking, the cookies you are literally fused into a single layer, type tart..
No idea why…
See you soon, Giusi

Hello Giusi!!! I'm sorry, I honestly don't know why they came. The recipe is not my, is a traditional Sicilian recipe and contains no eggs (you find several very similar on the net). The only risk factors that come to mind are the furnace used at a temperature greater than 170 degrees or fan assisted function, or – looked at the hot these days – a pastry not chilled enough. In the sense that cookies should be very, very cold before being fired: Maybe an hour in the refrigerator has not been sufficient. In the recipe you can decrease the amount of approximately 20 grams of butter, to ensure that little chilled not meet cooking problems. You don't know how sorry I am… I also once happened with Viennese cookies: beautiful mud, a compact table from cooked… the taste at least was good? ADA, very very sorry

Hello, ADA!
I think the oven temperature was 180 degrees, probably influenced this factor… Or the cookies weren't quite cold, retake them respecting exactly your advice and I will diminish the amount of butter as you suggested. However, the dough was good even when raw, so I must try again!
Thanks for the reply, a hug
Giusi

Hello Savior, even here in Rome really hot, It's like an oven with fan assisted function. Also I'm sicula, but I'll explain: There's little Bronte pistachio, I would say very little, and if you don't purchase the loco or the knowledge that both of Bronte (and I can not always here in Rome) then I'd rather use a pistachio that I know well, What di Stigliano, that's very Italian (in Basilicata) and that has a lot in common (starting from the strain of origin) with that of Bronte. Let me know if you like, a hug, ADA
