Chocolate Pistachio Heart Cookies
Ingredients
  • 2/3  cup  packed brown sugar
  • 1  cup  butter
  • 1  teaspoon  vanilla
  • 1  beaten egg
  • 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  tablespoon  shortening
  • 1/2  cup  ground pistachio nuts
Directions

1. In a medium saucepan combine the butter and brown sugar. Heat and stir over low heat until butter is melted. Remove saucepan from heat; stir in vanilla. Cool mixture 15 minutes. Stir in beaten egg, flour, and cocoa powder until combined. 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.

2. 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.

3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven about 9 minutes or until edges are firm. Transfer cookies to a wire rack; cool.

4. In a small heavy saucepan heat and stir chocolate pieces and shortening 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.
