I tried these cookies. They where divine! Thank you for sharing this recipe. The only thing i would change next time is to use less sugar. 1/2 cup is perfect for me.
I made your recipe and added 1/4 tsp nutmeg powder and cardamom powder in it.i also used 2 tbsp of milk to make dough. The cookies turned out great.Thank you
I tried these and the flour, butter, etc. did not meld into a recognizable dough, but was just flaky flour. It was not my butter, which was room temperature and I also did the 15 wait between processing. After checking for similar recipes, I discovered the others used more butter. I increased the butter in your recipe to two sticks (8 oz) (consistent with the other recipes) and the dough turned out perfectly AND the nuts stuck to the dough.
Hi, Andrea — Thanks so much for trying out the recipe and giving us your feedback. Elise and I both tried your suggestion of adding more butter and really liked the result. We decided 1 3/4 sticks (14 tablespoons) is the perfect amount for making an easy, workable, and reliable dough. 2 sticks also worked well, but the cookies spread a little more than we wanted and the texture was slightly different. So all in all, THANK YOU!
I made the almond version of these cookies and I love them! So simple. I think one trick to making sure they work is to really finely mince up the nuts. I chopped mine in a mini-chopper, which worked fine, but I could have chopped them even more. Also, once the logs were wrapped in plastic, I pressed the nuts in even more. That helped too. Now I want to make them with pistachios!
How would these turn out with roasted, salted pistachios?
Tasha, hello! I have not tried these with roasted, salted pistachios but I don’t see why they wouldn’t work. Let me know!
Would the pistachios go in the mix instead of around please
Hello Jo! Yes, you can put pistachios into the cookie dough, but they are going to be a little more difficult to slice. Try it! Happy baking!
oooh, these look delicious! I don’t own a food processor unfortunately… could I also just work the dough with my hands? Or do you think the texture might suffer?
Aileen, hello! You need a food processor for this particular dough.
This looks fabulous!
