Pistachio Nut Cookies
Corn Meal Nut Cookies

My brother gave me a gallon sized plastic bag
that was filled with shelled pistachio nuts.
What should I do with shelled pistachio nuts?
Now I've been on a kind of bread baking binge
and thought of making a pistachio nut bread.
Then searching the internet I found a recipe
for making pistachio nut corn meal cookies.
With a few changes from the original recipe,
this is what I ended up doing with the nuts.
The cookies came out crispy and tasty good.

1 cup shelled pistachio nuts
1 cup flour
1/4 Cup cornmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Process the pistachios nuts to be finely ground.
Place the ground nuts in a mixing bowl.
Add the flour, corn meal, sugar, and salt
mix until blended and then add softened butter
until fully incorporated into dry ingredients.
Add in the egg and vanilla to the mixture.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Place cookie dough by teaspoonfuls 2" apart
on a parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Bake for about 20 minutes or until the cookies
have a touch of brown on the outer edges.
