Granny’s Chocolate Pistachio Cookies



2/3 cup packed brown sugar

1 cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 egg, beaten

2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3/4 cup finely chopped pistachio nuts

3/4 cup semisweet chocolate pieces

1 Tbsp. butter or shortening

1/2 cup ground pistachio nuts


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.


In a medium saucepan over low heat melt together butter and brown sugar then remove from heat; stir in vanilla.    Cool mixture 15 minutes.   Stir in egg, flour, and cocoa powder.   Stir in the 3/4 cup pistachio nuts.    Divide dough in half.    Cover and chill about 30 minutes or until dough is easy to handle.


On a lightly floured surface, roll half of dough at a time to 1/4-inch thickness. Using a 2-inch heart-shape cookie cutter, cut out cookies.   Place cookies 1 inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.    Bake about 9 minutes or until edges are firm, then transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool.


In a small heavy saucepan heat and stir chocolate pieces and butter over low heat until melted. Remove from heat. Dip half of each cookie into chocolate mixture; roll edges of cookie in ground pistachio nuts. Makes about 48 cookies.
