2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (3.4-ounce) instant pistachio pudding mix
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon almond extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup miniature mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine flour, salt and pistachio pudding mix in small bowl. Set aside.
In separate bowl, cream butter and sugar until creamy and smooth.
Beat in egg. Add vanilla and almond extracts. Mix well.
Add flour mixture into butter mixture. Add chocolate chips.
Line baking sheet with a silicone liner or parchment paper. Form dough into 1-inch balls, and place at least 1 inch apart on cookie sheet. Press thumb into dough until “thumbprint” is achieved.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Let cool completely and fill the thumbprint with a dollop of Pistachio Buttercream Frosting (recipe below).
