are naughty but nice – what could be better than a nice cup of tea with these tasty almond and pistachio cookies? When you take a bite in your mouth you’ll find they are firm on the outside and beautifully soft on the inside.
I believe this cookies originally come from the East Mediterranean, where my old friend lived. Her name was Ramesh Vazan and her mum used to make these succulent cookies for us. This was back in 1984 – so it is a long time ago, but I never forgot the recipe and to this day I still enjoy making these cookies.
Ramesh’s mum used to make them on the evening of a celebration (‘or any excuse’ she used to say, as she loves making them!) Once made, they can keep for a week or two, but they never stay that long in my house as my husband has a sweet tooth. I do hope you will make them and love
