i'm mixing persian culture with some austrian touch and make some american christmas cookies. every time i make cookies in the middle of it i think: what was i thinking?!!! it's so time consuming and tiring but when the cookies are ready and the whole house smells like cookies, i don't regret baking them at all. the worse part is that i don't like cookie cutters and i use my hands to make them really hand made which takes a lot of time. i guess if you are an amateur like me in order to have less regrets you'd better use a couple of cute cookie cutters to save some time and nerves.
- one egg
- two cups sugar
- one vanilla fruit
- one cup butter
- two cups dried grated coconut
- two tablespoons ground pistachios for decoration
preheat oven to 350F. butter the baking plate and make small balls or other shapes with cookie cutter. add one piece of pistachio to each cookie to decorate. bake about twenty minutes in the center of the oven. nousheh-jahn!
