I have always been obsessed with pistachios. They’re so yummy! And, did you know they’re actually a seed, not a nut? They’re full of fiber and heart healthy fats too.

Surprisingly though, when ground into a meal, their flavor is really soft. I’ve been working a lot with pistachio meal lately so I decided to enhance it a bit with this awesome pistachio flavoring. I tried numerous other pistachio extracts (which are not easy to find) and was disappointed by all of them. This Beanilla one is awesome. It smells amazing too.

Ingredients:

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • To make the pistachio meal, simply put about 3/4 cup shelled pistachios in a food processor and grind into a fine meal.
  • Follow the instructions on the package for making cut-out cookies adding in the additional pistachio meal and pistachio flavor.
    • (TIP: add water a tsp at a time if you find the dough to be too dry with the additional ingredients. But don’t over-wet or it will be too sticky to roll out.)

  • Using a shamrock cookie cutter, cut out the cookies and put on an ungreased cookie sheet.
