  • 6FOR THE GARNISH:

    Put the egg white in a saucer, the pistachio nuts in another saucer & the sesame seeds in a third saucer.
  • 7Dip each of the shaped disks in the egg white, then in the pistachios ON ONE SIDE ONLY & then in the toasted sesame seeds on the other side, making sure you coat them well with the seeds.
  • 8Arrange the coated disks, pistachio side down, on the prepared baking sheet.
  • 9Bake 20-25 minutes or until cookies are golden brown, then let cool before serving. Keep uneaten cookies up to 2 weeks in a tightly sealed container.
