    I was very excited to make these cookies. I followed the recipe exactly as is and the cookies are just okay. I couldn't taste the lemon at all, but there is a huge pistachio flavor which is nice. But I don't think I'll make these cookies again, however if I do I'd add more lemon juice and some lemon zest.

    I made this in a very similar recipe, but calling only for 1/2 cup sugar. I didn't have pistacchios, so just grinded a mixture of toasted Brazil nuts, cashews and almonds with 2 Tbsp of the sugar and made a merengue like whiped whites with the rest of the sugar., then followed the recipe.

    hm...there seems to be a consensus here: the cookies do NOT look as pictures, are much browner, are very sticky and sweet, but taste ok. are the ratios correct??? just 1 Tbsp of flour and 1 cup of brown sugar??? sadly, i will not be making these again. i like the chocolate drizzle idea.

    baked last nite, had to grind pistachios in coffee grinder, takes too long by hand. Cookie dough very sticky, but baked into cookies well. Didn't look like picture at all, were darker, Tastes good, but very chewy,

    I'm sorry, but I just made these cookies for the first time and like Nancy, below, these don't look anything like the picture. My husband and I were in hysteric fits of laughter with tears running down our faces, as they looked more like the presents my cat leaves me to step in most mornings. Is the recipe actually correct?? Only 1 Tablespoon of flour??

    Help Please. Made 3 batches of these; none turned out like the picture in the Holiday Cookie magazine/website. Very sticky dough, spread into each other during cooking. 1st time, one gaint cookie, 2nd time made smaller balls still spread into each other. 3rd time smaller balls; still very FLAT sweet cookie (mess). They taste OK, but certainly look nothing like the pictures. To salvage them, I drizzled w/chocolate, helped the look. Suggestions/comments would be appreciated. Thanks Nancy

    For the pistachios, why not put them in the food processor?! That's what I do! It will be more like 2 seconds later... ;)

    I made these on Sunday, my co-worker -- Jay (shout out!) -- loved them so much, I sent him this recipe, and he told me to help you! :) The only thing I can think that would cause this would be the egg white. My dough was very sticky, didn't seem to have a problem holding itself toghether. My biggest drama, I didn't buy chopped pistachios (i had so many at home), so i decided to chop them myself -- word to the wise -- never, ever do that...2 hours later...
