Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.

  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add pistachios and stir until the butter is lightly browned, about 1 minute. Transfer the mixture to a bowl. Whisk in sugar. Add flour, egg whites and ginger and whisk until smooth. Drop the batter by heaping teaspoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto the prepared baking sheets. Bake, one sheet at a time, until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Immediately transfer the cookies with a spatula to a rack to cool. If the cookies begin to stick before all are removed, return the pan briefly to the oven.


Make Ahead Tip: Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
