Pistachio Almond Cookies

 It has been very difficult to feed dry fruits  to  my kids.  Eating nuts as it is , is a difficult part. So I tried adding nuts powder in cookies.  And you wont believe these  cookies vanished within no time. These rich and delicious cookies with lots of almond and pistachio powder are most popular and preferred cookies in India. As Christmas is around, its perfect time to bake these cookies.

This recipe goes to the week 4,  day 2 of BM 71, under the theme" Kids Delight-Cakes and Cookies". Here goes the recipe.....


All purpose flour 1 1/2 cup
Pistachio powder 1/2 cup
Almond powder 1/2 cup
Yellow custard powder 2 tbsp.
Powdered Sugar 1/2 cup
Vanilla essence 1/2 spoon
Butter 2/3 cup
Baking powder 1 spoon


Sieve all the dry ingredients ( all purpose flour, custard powder, baking powder) together in a mixing bowl.
Add pistachio and almond powder.
In a separate bowl add butter (which is at room temperature) and sugar.
Beat the mixture well and add vanilla essence.
Now add dry ingredients and fold it well.
Add little milk if you think the mixture is too dry.
Divide dough into 2 portions and cling wrap it to refredgerate for 1 hour.
Preheat oven.
Remove the dough  and cut into 1/2 inch thickness pieces.
Garnish  each cookie with pistachio and almond pieces.
Bake for 15 minutes on 325 degrees F.
Let them cool down for 10-15 minutes to serve.
