A VERY RICH cookie... great for Christmas or anytime. It looks hard to make.. but it is SOOOO easy! A little bit pricey to make, with both almond paste and pistachio fingers. But they are very good. If you like marzipan and pistachios these are for you.

  • 3/4 c
    butter softened
  • 1/3 c
  • 3 oz
    almond paste
  • 1
    egg yolk
  • 1 2/3 c
    all purpose flour

  • 1 c
    semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c

How to Make Chocolate Pistachio Fingers


  1. Cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until blended.
  2. Add almond paste and egg yolk and beat until light and fluffy. (If the almond paste isn't breaking down grab the dough with your hand. The heat of your hand will melt the almond paste sufficiently to be able to incorporate it completely.)
  3. Blend in flour a little at a time to make a smooth dough.
  4. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours ( or up to 2 weeks)
  5. Turn out onto a lightly floured board.
  6. Divide into 8 equal pieces. ( easy way to do it. is to divide in half, then divide those again in half until you have 8 equal pieces.)
  7. Roll each piece into a 12 inch rope, cut each rope into 2 inch lengths. Place onto parchment covered cookie sheets.
  8. You can put these fairly close together. 1/2 an inch apart.
  9. Bake 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degree oven until edges are light brown. The top of your cookie will still be white.
  10. Cool completely on a wire rack.
  12. Melt chocolate chips either in a double boiler or in the microwave on medium. Stirring every minute or two.
  13. Dip both ends in the chocolate and then in the pistachios.
  14. Place on wax paper until they cool completely.
  15. These can be stored for up to 2 months in a cool dark place.
