  • Shortbread

    Bring the butter to room temperature by either leaving outside over night or microwaving it for a few seconds. Place the butter and the powdered sugar in the bowl of the mixer and mix until light and creamy. Once this step is reached, add the eggs one by one to ensure they are well incorporated. Add the vanilla extract. Mix the pistachios with the sifted flour and add in the bowl to the wet ingrédients. Mix until well incorporated and homogenous. Roll the dough out into small logs about 1 inch across in diameter and leave them in the fridge until they are firm.

  • Sugar dusting

    Once the logs are nice and firm, place them in cold water and then roll them out in the sugar to have the cookies well coated. Once they are coated cut with a sharp knife to the thickness of 2cm and place on a baking tray. Cook for 20 minutes at 350°F until they are lightly browned.

Carefull not to overcook the shortbread cookies since they might dry out.
