This has been a favorite since the first time I made it a few years ago. For more flavor sift out the finest parts of the ground nuts to make up the 1 cup of nuts that go into the batter. This add a richer flavor to the nuts,, The chunker pieces sprinkle on top. Be carefull when you roast the nuts you want to bring out the flavor not mute it, over roasting can dull the flavor.

I really love pistachios, so I was eager to try these. They are a little blah. I was surprised that the salted, roasted nuts added so little to the flavor. It is a nice basic cookie dough that I will keep for possibly other cookie ideas. I just think this recipe, as it stands, isn't very tasty.

I first made these cookies 4 years ago & they became my family's favorite.
