Chocolate Pistachio Hearts

Ooooh, this is another super one! It takes a bit of work, but they look absolutely wonderful and taste even better! I won a prize for these at a cookie exchange one year. We'd ply the men with beer and wine and then send them downstairs to "judge" the entries though ... haha

I've subbed hazlenuts for the pistachios with great results as well.

Chocolate Pistachio Hearts

1 c butter
2/3 c packed brown sugar
1 t vanilla
1 beaten egg
2 1/4 c all-purpose flour
1/4 c unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 finely chopped pistachio nuts

2/4 c semisweet chocolate pieces
1 T shortening
1/4 c ground pistachio nuts

Combine butter and brown sugar in a medium saucepan. Heat and stir till butter is melted. Remove from heat.

Stir in vanilla. Cool 15 minutes.

Stir in beaten egg, flour and cocoa powder till combined. Stir in chopped pistachios. Cover and chill 30 minutes or until easy to handle.

Roll dough to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 2-inch hearts. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350-degree oven about 9 minutes or until firm. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

Melt together chocolate pieces and shortening in a small, heavy saucepan. Dip half of each heart into the mixture, edge with ground pistachios.

Makes 48 cookies.

[QUOTE=Yakuta]Pistachio, Cranberry and White Chocolate Biscotti

I love Biscotti's and this one is my favorite. The first time I made it my husband told me that he thought it came from a coffee or specialty shop.

2 cups of all purpose flour
1/4 cup of canola oil (yes no butter in this cookie)
2 eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp of almond extract
2 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tsp of baking powder
1 pack of Nestle White chocolate chips
1 cup of craisins
**1 cup of shelled pistachios (salted kind are fine)

QUOTE]

attempting these RIGHT NOW, wish me good fortune!
**I used chopped walnuts as I didn't have any pistachios and it seems to have worked out just fine.
I did it! They're wonderful, so good, and boy am I ever impressed with myself . Who knew I could make these gorgeous things. Taking them tomorrow to the airport to give to the crew I'm flying to Calgary on and their staff, plus, a lady at our company for the work she helped me with regarding my tickets. Also made chocolate chip biscotti, Kitchenelfs shortbread and Millionaire brownies for these above mentioned people. I think they're all a hit! Thanks for sharing.
