Kaju Pista Cookies/Cashew and Pistachios Cookies


Cashews and pistachios cookies are yet another mouth melting cookies flavored with cardamom powder.I have bookmarked the recipe from here but altered slightly and made it according to my family's taste.

The cookies came out so good with the crunchiness of nuts and the cardamom flavor.The nuts need to be chopped very finely and added to the dough.The dough can be rolled out and cut with cookie cutter.But I sliced the chilled dough and baked.Either way it turned out good.My kids enjoyed it to the core.Off to the recipe.................

  • Instead of icing sugar,regular sugar can be powdered and used.
  • Use a sharp knife and slice the dough.Don't slice it too thin.
  • The butter should be in room temperature.
  • If salted butter is used then no need to add salt.
  • Some chopped nuts can be topped after slicing the dough for extra taste.But do not add more nuts in the dough,otherwise slicing will be difficult.
