Pistachio Wedding Cookies

Pistachio Wedding Cookies

These melt-in-your-mouth Pistachio Wedding Cookies will quickly become your new favorite!

The Christmas Cookie countdown continues this week with these buttery, melt in your mouth soft pistachio wedding cookies.  I have to admit, these are probably my favorite cookie and I have my father to thank for getting me hooked on these.  My dad brought over a tray of assorted Italian cookies, one of them being a soft pistachio cookie.  I don’t think any of us could stop eating them.  They were the first gone on the tray.  I stopped at the bakery to see what they were called and they really had no name for them.  They just said they were a pistachio cookie, however they were not filled with a lot of pistachios like other pistachio cookies I have tried in the past.  I was on the hunt to find out what this cookie was.  It was a blend between a Italian or Mexican wedding cake and a shortbread.
