Coming at you with a Vegan Pistachio Cookie recipe – because one can never have enough vegan cookie recipes and these are one of the best cookies you will ever try! Well, along with my Pistachio Apricot Thumbprints. Those are pretty amazing as well.

These almond pistachio cookies are a sweet and simple little treat you can bake all year long but they are also great for the holidays because anything with pistachios in it is automatically festive and special.  A touch of cardamom and saffron takes these to the next level! Try them. Trust me, you will love this pistachio cookie recipe for its simplicity!

I don’t even bother rolling out the dough and just scoop up 1 tbsp at a time and shape it into a flat disk. The cookies do not have to look perfectly round. They will spread in the oven as they bake and be just perfect.

The cookie dough is really straightforward. We start by grinding the raw pistachio nuts, sugar and spices in a food processor or blended to make our own pistachio flour.  These are so amazingly good! Bake them 15 minutes for softer cookies and a couple of minutes longer for crunchier. The exact baking time always depends on the oven, size of the cookie etc.

These cookies are a modified version of Nankhatai(Indian shortbread like cookies). They have vibrant flavors that work really well together , pistachios, cardamom and saffron. You can use just vanilla if you don’t have cardamom or saffron. GF option
