Food Need help figuring out the recipe for this cookie!


Sep 18, 2006
Hi all! I am not a huge cook but will cook a few things here and there.. I was given a recipe for pistachio cookies a long time ago and recently lost it :crybaby: I love love loveeeedddd them to death and it must have been her recipe because I haven't been successful in finding it by googling "pistachio cookie recipe".

I remember most of the ingredients I just don't know how much to put in.. for all the expert desert chefs in here, perhaps you can help me figure out how much I should be putting in? I don't know if its even possible this way but worth a try, right? :graucho: This reminds me of the episode in Friends where Monica tries to figure out what was in the chocolate chip cookies!

So here are hte ingredients:

-Almond Extract
-Nutmeg extract??
-green food coloring
-Pistachio pudding mix
-crushed almonds
-milk & eggs
-powdered sugar

Can anyone please help me with this! I WOULD BE SOOOO HAPPY!!! If you see an ingredient that should typically be in a cookie please also reply with it!!! TIA! :tup::tup:

PISTACHIO PUDDING COOKIES 2 1/4 c. unsifted all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 c. butter, well softened
1/4 c. granulated white sugar
3/4 c. light brown sugar
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 (4 oz.) pkg. pistachio instant pudding (used dry)
2 eggs
1 (12 oz.) pkg. butterscotch morsels
1 c. chopped walnuts
Few drops green food coloring (opt.)

Mix flour and baking soda in medium bowl. Combine butter, both sugars, both extracts and instant pudding powder in large mixing bowl. Beat until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Gradually stir in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Batter will be very stiff; mix well with floured hands. Cover bowl; chill several hours or overnight for easier shaping. Form into smooth balls by teaspoonfuls. Place 2" apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. If desired, drizzle with confectioners' sugar icing mixed with a few drops green food coloring.
