I can turn a happy cookie post into a weather rant, but be rest assured nothing like that is going to happen. Long story short, yesterday was a snow day; got over a foot of snow, with sub zeros that was bone chilling. Teen had a day off and lots of time on her hands, she wanted to bake chocolate chip cookies,  after some deliberation she decided on these amazing lemon cookies. This is very similar to the Indian naankhatai. This was quite a hit in the Jois household.  Super delicious, melt in your mouth cookies.

Just one of those days where I have nothing much to say,  am just itching to do something creative today, so after a long time I just might take out my sketching book…in the meantime you guys enjoy the cookies, teen baked for you.

1 cup of butter (2sticks) unsalted
3/4 cup + 2 tbsp sugar
1 large egg
2 lemon zest ( zest from 2 medium lemons)
3 tbs lemon juice
21/2 cups all purpose flour
pinch of salt
1/4 cup pistachios finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350F (180C)

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar, add eggs and mix, add the lemon zest followed by all purpose flour, fold the dough. The dough is grease to touch and quite pliable.

Roll the dough into 1 inch balls, flatten a bit on top. Add pistachio on top and bake for 10-12 minutes, until it is lightly brown in the bottom.

Cool on rack, store in airtight container.

Makes about 20-25
