Ingredients

Chocolate pistachio shortbread

  • 1/2 cup (70g) roasted unsalted pistachios
  • 250 g (8 ounces) unsalted butter
  • 1 cup (160g) icing (confectioners') sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups (185g) plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 1/2 cup (100g) rice flour cup
  • 35 g dutch cocoa powder

Steps

Chocolate pistachio shortbread

  1. Preheat oven to 160°C (140°C fan forced). Line two large oven trays with baking paper.
  2. Process half the nuts until finely ground, finely chop remaining nuts.
  3. Beat butter and sifted icing sugar in a small bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Transfer mixture to a large bowl, stir in sifted flours, cocoa and ground nuts, in two batches. Turn dough onto floured surface, knead until smooth.
  4. Divide dough into two portions, roll each between sheets of baking paper into 23cm (9-inch) rounds, place on trays. Mark each round into 12 wedges, prick with a fork. Using floured fingers, pinch a frill around each shortbread, sprinkle with chopped nuts.
  5. Bake about 30 minutes. Cool shortbreads on trays before cutting into wedges.
