Saw this easy and delicious butter cookies recipe in one of my friends place and wanted to give it a try. With few modifications made these Butter cookies with a touch of pistachio flavor. My kids are picky eaters and not a big fan of eat nuts in their daily diet. So I have added some pistachio powder to the cookie mixture, believe me or not kid's didn't even know that I have added some nuts to the cookies. Now these are a big hit in my house.
Today we are starting with BM 59, last marathon for the year 2015. Starting this months Marathon with a special theme called "Holiday Bakes". As holidays are around the corner, and kids are having parties and Christmas celebrations in school, made these melt in mouth Butter Cookies for my kids and their friends. Here goes the recipe.......

Corn starch / Corn flour 1 cup
Butter 1 stick
Sugar powder 1/4
Powdered / crushed Pistachio 1/4 cup

In a bowl mix butter and sugar powder to become a soft mixture.
In a separate bowl mix together flour, corn starch and pistachio powder.
