  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 300 °F. Coat 2 baking sheets with cooking spray.
  2. 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.

Crispy Cookie Perfection! Why all the fuss making your typical cookie dough cookies when you can whip up these heavenly crispy, guilt-free, tasty little thins in an instant? My husband loves me even more since I made these for him. You have to try them! I used chopped almond and added a bit of chopped crystalized ginger. Soooo good! Pros: Quick, Easy, guilt-free, unique Cons: Recipe needs doubling cuz they disappear so fast!
