Vanilla Mug Cookies with Pistachios

5070 Min

Simple, crumbly mug cookies best enjoyed with a cup of coffee. Cut in a slit so you can balance them on the edge of your mug! Topped with chopped pistachios, these cookies really look something special. The vanilla adds a distinctive taste to the natural sweetness of the sugar.

    Preheat the oven to 180 °C (356 °F).

    Blend the flour, 100 g powdered sugar, egg, softened butter, Bourbon vanilla sugar and sliced lemon peel together well in a blender.

    Then knead the dough by hand and shape it into a ball. Wrap plastic wrap around the dough and chill for 30 minutes.
