Blogging Marathon# 27: Week 1/ Day 7
Theme: Occasions/ Goodies to Blog buddies
Dish: Pistachio Sandwich Cookies
When blog buddies meet there is going to be food to eat, food to talk about and food to take home. So after our lunch at I wrote about here, I sent my buddies home with some of my homemade goodies. These pistachio sandwich cookies were one among them.
I love slice and bake icebox cookie recipes. What that means is the dough is made into a log and chilled in the ice box for 4 hours (or up to 3 days, it can even to frozen) and then sliced and baked. I don’t like rolling the dough and cutting the cookie using cookie cutters. It seems to too time consuming and messy. I actually have a whole box of cookie cutters that I have never used until now. Maybe when my daughter grows a little older, I can learn with her 🙂
This recipe is from Everyday Food magazine. Recipe looked simple to make and the pictures were too tempting not to try.
My cookies turned out on the ‘oval’ side because when the logs I made had a flat side. So to avoid that, make sure that the logs are round, so you get rounder, circular cookies.
Make note that the butter should be very soft and at room temperature.
