Instructions
  1. Process the pistachio nuts in a food processor until you get “pistachio flour”.
  2. Add the icing sugar and stir.
  3. Whisk the egg whites with the electric mixer till stiff.
  4. Gradually add the egg whites into the pistachio and sugar mixture; stir till all ingredients are combined, and you end up with a sticky dough.
  5. Let the dough rest for 12 hours in a fridge.
  6. Preheat an oven to 160 Celsius degrees.
  7. Form small balls from the mixture (approx. walnut size), coat them in icing sugar, place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper and flatten slightly.
  8. Bake in the hot oven for 15 minutes, the cookies shouldn’t get golden, so they remain soft inside.
