Recipe for 100% pistachio shortbread (for 14 shortbread):
-140g of flour
-25g of potato starch
-110g of powdered sugar
-50g of pistachio powder
-110g of soft butter
-1/4 teaspoon baking powder
-a good pinch of salt
-65g of raw pistachios
-1/2 teaspoon bitter almond flavoring
Put the flour, potato starch, pistachio powder, powdered sugar, salt and yeast in a bowl.
Mix and add the soft butter.
You can mix by hand, it takes 3 minutes! Then pour in the half spoonful of bitter almond flavouring and the whole raw pistachios.
Stir to evenly distribute the pistachios. Then bring the dough back into a ball.
Shape into a 5 cm diameter sausage.
Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for at least two hours.
With a very good knife, cut 1cm thick slices. Hold the sausage firmly so that it does not break when you slice the pistachios.
Preheat your oven to 180°C and place the slices on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the shortbread until golden brown (15 to 20 minutes).
Let them cool on a baking sheet and store them in an airtight box!
You can keep them for several days. To crunch then without moderation…
