chopped pistachio nuts
Very light, VERY crisp -- turned out almost more like a savoury cracker, not that there's anything wrong with that. Nice consistency and satisfying taste; excellent tea cookie. Suggest making them rather smaller than indicated and spacing them out fairly far on the sheet.
the recipe looked kinda weird, but i went ahead and tried it anyway. is the batter supposed to be so runny? i wasn't exactly sure... the first batch was runny and stuck to the cookie sheet. i had to scrub and scrub after soaking to get it off! so i whisked in a little baking powder to the rest of the baking mixture and [using a spouted measuring cup] poured it into a mini-muffin pan. i then put that pan into a water bath (a 9"x13" baking pan filled less than halfway with water) and baked it at 375 for ~20 minutes. i had no idea what to expect.... fortunately, i loved the result! a sweet egg custard with delicate pistachio flavors and the consistency or custard/mochi/tamago. my roommate also liked it--she said it tastes just like the egg custards sold at the chinese market. can someone clarify what to expect from the original recipe??
This recipe did not work for me. The consistency was so thin--I think the measurements are wrong. It was like a puffy pistachio omelet.
Very frustrating. Soup is right. But I stayed positive. I tried smaller cookies and reducing time. Still woudln't come off of bak. sheet great. Tried sprinkling flour on sheet hoping the batter would stay more put. Not. Then I tried reducing time and then wrapping around wooden spoon to make more attractive. Uggh. I thought they had no taste at all, waste of 7 eggs to make 1 cup of egg white, and what a waste of pistachios at the price of those. If you like a challenge go for it.
