Jennifer Caceres is a new contributor to Cooking Hawaiian Style and is sharing her first recipe for Pistachio snowballs. Jennifer lives in California, but feels like a local girl She won the Koolina SpamJam competitions with her 50/50 spam panko burger. Stay tuned for the recipe!
- 3/4 cup ground pistachios
- 1 cup butter (softened)
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 and 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- Extra powdered sugar
- A few drops green food coloring..(a few more if you want a darker green)
Stir together pistachios, butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and green food coloring. mix well. Then add flour and salt to mixture, mix well. Roll into 1 inch balls
Bake at 350 until set to light brown edges. try 8 to 10 minutes. Then check frequently thereafter.
I wrap the bake racks with foil and place the cookies in the grooves instead of putting them on a cookie sheet. It seems to cook better. I roll the cookies with the extra powdered sugar after the cookies have completely cooled off. A great recipe for the pistachio lovers!
