Pistachio Cookies

Pistachio Cookies using finch

While breaking our fast we always have atleast one sweet laid on the table specially for the kids and these cookies are the perfect choice for today’s Ashura fast !!!

These cookies are so easy to make and requires minimal ingredients because the pistachio makes it so special and the semolina gives a nice texture unlike the regular cookies you would have tried…

I have made it several times and each time I tried with a variation : Used colour and no colour so that choice is yours

Let’s Get Started

You Will Need


  • 250g Butter
  • 1/5 Cups Soft Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Semolina
  • 1 Egg
  • Chopped Pistachios
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Cardamom Powder
  • 1 tsp Orange Blossom Water(Optional)

Step One : Beat butter and sugar till nice and fluffy

Scrape down the edges in-between to make sure they’re well combined.

Step Two : Add eggs

Step Three : Add cardamom and semolina

Step Four : Fold the flour in gradually

Add a few spoonfuls if needed

Step Five : Add Orange Blossom Water

Step Six : Add Pistachios

Step Seven : Now the mixture looks more like a manageable cookie dough

Step Eight : Let this chill for at least an hour before baking

Step Nine : Make medium sized balls inbetween your palms and flatten it.

Step Ten : Press the cookie dough ball into more crushed nuts

Place these cookie dough balls on a lined baking tray

Bake in a preheated oven at 180’ for 15-20 minutes only.If the bottom is slightly browned, it is time to remove from oven.

Each oven differs with timings and the heat, so please study your oven before you bake these babies.Do not over bake them

Leave them in thr baking tray for another 10 minutes atleast before transferring to a cooling rack.It can still be soft as soon as it’s out of the oven.It may take a few minutes for the cookie to become firm and touchable.

Enjoy with a nice cup of black mint tea !!!
