Delicious Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies – Supergoda Choklad & Pistage Snittar

IMG_5028

Chocolate “cuts” as we call them in Sweden (just because you cut them side-wise even though you bake them as “one” dough) are a true classic. Just as the sesame syrup cookies, they are easy to make and a true crowd pleaser. In general, we sprinkle them with pearl sugar, but this time, I chose to use both pearl sugar and pistachios, just to spice it up (and, why settle with one when you could have both?). Recipe as follows;
