Chocolate Pistachio Wafers

Here is the second cookie recipe that my husband found on the inside of the Challenge Butter package.  He said we should try it.  What a smart man!

Chocolate Pistachio Wafers

  • 3/4 c or 1 1/2 sticks of salted butter
  • 1 c sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/4 c flour
  • 1/3 c unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 to 3/4 c finely chopped raw pistachio nuts

Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.  Beat in egg and vanilla.  Sift flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt.  Fold dry ingredients into creamed mixture and mix until blended.  Form dough into two 10 inch to 11 inch long logs on sheets of parchment paper.  Position each log in the center of the paper.  Pour half of the chopped pistachios in a line parallel with each log of dough.  Roll logs in nuts to thoroughly cover the outside of each log.  Wrap each log in parchment paper and chill for 2-3 hours.  Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Slice each log into 1/4 inch slices and put on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes.  Yields about 5 dozen.

One of my work colleagues favors this cookie over all others.  She won’t even eat the other cookies in the gift package because she loves these that much.  I offered to share the recipe with her and she said no because she only wants to treat herself to enjoying them once a year.  Wow!

Happy baking!
