  • Unsalted pistachios 1 cup
  • Unsalted butter 4 oz
  • Caster sugar 1/2 cup
  • Egg 1
  • Flour 1 1/2 cups
  • Dark chocolate, chopped 8 oz

Place the pistachios in a small bowl and cover with water; set aside for 30 minutes. Drain the pistachios well and place them on a paper towel to dry. Beat the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. Add in the egg and beat, add in the flour and pistachios and mix. Your dough should be stiff. Scrape the cookie dough onto a floured surface and gently knead it for 30 seconds. Divide the dough in half, then roll each portion of cookie dough into a log that’s roughly 2″ in diameter. Wrap each log tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours (or upto 5 days). Remove the dough from the fridge and place it on a cutting board. Using a sharp knife, slice the logs of cookie dough into 1/4″ rounds. Place the cookies 1/2″ apart on the prepared baking sheet, and bake at 180 degrees C for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden. Remove the oven and place the pan on a cooling rack. Cool for at least 15 minutes before removing. In the meantime, make the chocolate coating. Melt the chopped chocolate in a double boiler or in the microwave. Dip each cookie halfway into the chocolate then return to the lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt or additional chopped pistachios, if desired. Allow the chocolate to set before serving. Place the baking sheet into the refrigerator.
