Delicious soft cookies studded with pistachios and flavoured with vanilla. These Pistachio & Vanilla Cookies are simple to make & definitely a bit special!
Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan assisted, 200°C non fan) and line two baking trays with silicone liners or parchment paper
Add the margarine and sugar to your mixer or a large bowl and beat until pale and fluffy
Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again
Add in the flour and ground pistachios and mix until just combined
Spoon balls of cookie dough onto the lined tins leaving enough space for the cookies to spread slightly when baking
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until slightly golden
Leave to cook for a few minutes on the trays before transferring to a wire rack and leaving to cool completely
Once the cookies have cooled, make the drizzle. Add the icing sugar, water and vanilla extract to a bowl and stir until any lumps have gone
Drizzle over the cookies either by spooning into a piping bag and cutting a small hole in the end or with a spoon for a more rustic look
Finish by scattering each cookie with some ground pistachios
Keep in an air tight container for 3-4 days.
