One of the most popular pista biscuits loved by all whether kids or adults. In india, biscuits are a must with tea in every household. These pistachio (pista) cookies are so delightful prepared with Flour, butter and pista nuts. It has creamy taste and full of flavor.


I also added Kewra essence that is so good that while baking whole house was filled with it's aroma. I usually make these for my toddler as he really enjoys eating these pista cookies.
