Pistachio Orange Cookies – all my loveliest ingredients in one Cookie!
There are not that many ingredients I love more than vanilla. But one are pistachios. I love pistachios since I was a little child. I eat pistachio ice cream 7 times a week (ok maybe 3 times ;o)) and there are my best friend at school. Ate them often roasted and salted. In the meanwhile I don’t eat them salted because too much salt isn’t good for your body. So use less salt and more spices.
Pistachio as a super healthy source of protein
I add a lot of nuts to my diet because nuts are one of the best source of good fats, high quality protein and vitamin-e (the vitamin for a good skin). Just a hand full of pistachios a day provides enough recommended levels of anti-oxidants, minerals, vitamins, and Protein.
I learned this year to add orange zest in my cookies, cakes and muffins to have an amazing flavor. The combination pistachio and orange taste so good that I like to share this cookie recipe for these Pistachio Orange Cookies with you. This recipe is gluten-free and raffinated sugar free.
