Serves: 12 persons
Preparation time : 20 minutes
Cooking time : 15 minutes
2 cups butter or 400 g, soft
4½ cups plain flour or 630 g
2 teaspoons vanilla powder
¾ cup caster sugar or 150 g
4 egg yolks
4 cups pistachio nuts or 400 g, ground
1 tin NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk or 397 g
Mix the softened butter with the flour by hand until evenly distributed.
Make a well in the middle of the dry mixture and add vanilla, sugar and egg yolks. Use your fingertips to draw the ingredients together.
Press the dough together into a ball, and then knead it lightly, pressing with hands until the dough is smooth.
In a bowl, mix ground pistachio with NESTLÉ® Sweetened Condensed Milk until it forms a paste. Then gently work together pistachio paste with the previous dough until combined, cover and chill for ½ hour.
Sprinkle the dough with flour and place it between two sheets of greaseproof paper, then gently roll it between the papers to a 3mm thick.
Cut out shapes with cookie cutter, place 1 cm apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 200°C preheated oven, for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.
Remove gently the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
Dust the cookies with icing sugar to serve.
