Made these for a Christmas cookie exchange and they were delicious! I used the roasted and salted pistachios from Costco, and I think the little bit of salt on them enhanced the flavor of the cookies. I didn't toast them, as the recipe calls for, since they were already roasted, but I think the nuts would have been nicely crispy if I had. I'll definitely do it next time.... and there WILL be a next time!
