Pistachio biscuits

Ingredients

  • 100g of icing sugar
  • 30g of plain flour 
  • 80g of butter
  • 6 table spoons of orange juice
  • 75g of pistachios roughly chopped

Method

  • Mix the sugar and the flour.
  • Melt the butter with the orange juice. Let it cool down and mix it with the flour/sugar preparation. Whisk to obtain a consistent dough. Add in the pistachios and mix again. Lay some baking paper on a large oven tray. With a table spoon form some small circles of 3/4 cm of diameter leaving at least 2cm between them (the biscuits expand a lot when they cook). Cook at 150C in a fan oven for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and leave the biscuits to cool down. Keep in a tinned box.
