Pistachio Crumble Cookies

These are similar to “mexican wedding cookies”, but are made with pistachios instead of walnuts…which I love!  Since there were made for a kid’s birthday party I also added colorful sprinkles to the top. I also made some into lollipops but had a hard time making them stay in place. But they are just as cute in little muffin liners.

Ingredients: (Adapted from Joyofbaking.com)

  • 1 c. Butter, soft
  • 1/3 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 c. flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2/3 c. pistachios, crushed
  • More powdered sugar, for dusting on top
  • Sprinkles (optional)


  1. Combine all ingredients until it comes together. Roll into small balls about the size of golf balls.
  2. Place in baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  3. Place balls in freezer for about 15 minutes
  4. Bake in preheated oven at 350 for 12-15 minutes.
  5. When slightly cooled, dust powdered sugar and sprinkles on top.
