Pistachio nuts are perfect to add to muffins, cookies, cheesecakes, breads, and cupcakes. Their flavour is mild, texture is starchy with buttery consistency. Raw nuts taste much better but don’t expect them to maintain green colour once your dessert is baked. If you prepare pistachio batter add some food colour to have green coloured cake.

How to make this batch of pistachio thumbprint cookies?

In most of the cases, I do all the cookie dough recipes on clean flat working surface. No bowl for me. This way, I can experience the consistency the best possible way. So, you combine butter, sugar, egg yolk, vanilla extract, flour, ground pistachio and pinch of salt. After some rest in your fridge, you start shaping the dough for baking.

Rose petals jam is the best to fill this batch of thumbprint cookies. If you wander what it tastes like, the answer is very simple: it’s like chewing a rose, sweet and exotic. The jars I use for desserts are made from Bulgarian roses and it is fantastic! However, most of chefs say Damask rose is the best.

If you can’t get rose jam for this cookies recipe, raspberry jam is great!
