Pistachio Drop Cookies

Adapted from my Snowball Cookies, these soft and crumbly Pistachio Cookies are made from REAL pistachios and topped with brown butter icing. The cookie dough is made from 6 easy ingredients and requires just 1 mixing bowl. There’s only 30 minutes of cookie dough chilling needed, making this a quick cookie recipe.

1 cup (130g) salted or unsalted pistachios (see note)
1 cup (2 sticks; 230g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
3/4 cup (90g) confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 teaspoon almond extract
2 and 1/4 cups (281g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
optional: 1-2 drops green food coloring (I used 1 drop of gel)
Brown Butter Icing (Optional)
1/4 cup (4 Tbsp; 60g) unsalted butter
1 cup (120g) confectioners’ sugar
2 Tablespoons (30ml) milk
1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Pulse pistachios in a food processor until small crumbs form. See photo above for a visual. You need 3/4 cup of very finely chopped pistachios. Set aside.
Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter for 1 minute on medium speed until completely smooth and creamy. Add the confectioners’ sugar, vanilla extract, and almond extract, then beat on medium-high speed until combined. Add the flour, 3/4 cup pistachio crumbs, and food coloring (if using) and beat on medium-high speed until combined. The dough may not come together at first, but keep mixing. The cookie dough will be thick.
