The Twelve Cookies of Christmas 2013 - Buttery Almond Pistachio Thins

12 Cookies of Christmas 2013

Buttery Almond Pistachio Thins


The only time I truly enjoy baking cookies is at Christmas.  The other 11 months of the year I am perfectly content to bake everything BUT a cookie.  Call it nostalgia, or call it complete lunacy but I would bake every day in December if time allowed.  Yes, there are that many cookie recipes that I love.

I have made these for a few years now, and they get rave reviews from family & friends.  While I generally prefer a chewy cookie to a crisp one these Buttery Almond Pistachio Thins are delightful.  They freeze well with or WITHOUT the topping, it’s your choice when to add it.



It’s not easy to find an almond-pistachio flavor anything.  So pick your favorite from the “nut flavored” list here, or play around with a combination of syrups and coffees.  Something tells me that no matter what your choice it will be a winner!
