Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
1 cup Cake flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/2 cup Oil
1/2 teaspoon Baking soda
3/4 teaspoon Baking powder
1/4 cup American pistachio kernels, chopped
Heat sugar and oil in a sauce pan using low heat. Blend the mixture until the sugar turns golden. Remove from heat and transfer sugar mixture to a mixing bowl. When cool, add the egg to the sugar mixture. Blend in cake flour, baking soda, and baking powder and mix into a dough. Divide the dough into small parts and shape them into cookies on a baking tray. Spread pistachio kernels on the top. Bake the cookies at 400⁰ F for approximately 15 minutes until golden.
