Sure, you've probably tried regular or maybe even chocolate shortbread cookies, but have you ever tried Pistachio-Studded Shortbread? From the moment you take a bite and taste the combination of buttery shortbread, crunchy pistachios, and a creamy chocolate drizzle we know you'll be hooked.
What You'll Need
- 1/2 cup pistachio nuts, chopped
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1/2 teaspoon vegetable shortening
What to Do
- Reserve 1 tablespoon chopped pistachio nuts. In a medium bowl, combine remaining pistachio nuts, flour, sugar, melted butter, and almond extract; mix well until a dough forms. Roll into a ball and return to bowl; cover and chill 30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out dough to a 12- x 6- inch rectangle. Cut into 1/2- x 3- inch pieces and place on ungreased rimmed baking sheets.
- Bake 10 to 15 minutes, or until edges are slightly golden. Remove to wire racks and allow to cool completely.
- Melt chocolate chips and shortening in a small saucepan over low heat until smooth, stirring constantly. Drizzle over shortbread and sprinkle with reserved chopped pistachio nuts.
- Chill 15 minutes, or until chocolate has set. Serve immediately, or store in an airtight container.
