Chewy, paleo cookies. Light and meringue-y (yes I just invented that word). 

5 ingredients and all you need is about 15 minutes free to have these babies waiting for you on your kitchen worktop. 

This is what you make when your kids look up at you with their sparkly little eyes and ask for a treat while they watch a film. Whip these up, get them to choose the film while you slip the cookies into the oven and they'll be ready by the time the titles begin. 

Go on, you deserve it. 

Pistachio Butter Cookies
Makes 10-12
160g jar of pistachio butter - I use this Meridian Foods one
1 egg
half teaspoon vanilla extract
half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
for drizzling: dark chocolate and chopped pistachios


Super easy. 

Preheat your oven to 165ÂșC. 

Mix all the ingredients until smooth (the batter will be very sticky) and dollop tablespoon-sized blobs onto a greaseproof-lined baking tray. I used two spoons - one to scrape the mixture off the other spoon. 

Bake for 10 minutes. They will sink and crackle a bit and this is good. Allow to cool and drizzle, if you like, with your favourite dark chocolate - I like Ombar. Sprinkle with chopped pistachios for crunch and colour before the chocolate sets and you're done.
