Directions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until softened. Add sugar and beat until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and almond extract and beat well.
  2. Stir together flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until well mixed.
  3. Divide the dough in half and stir food coloring into one half. Cover and chill at least 30 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  5. On a lightly floured surface, roll about 1/2 tablespoon of plain dough into a 6-inch rope. Repeat with green dough.
  6. Place ropes side by side and twist together about 6 times. Form twisted ropes into a circle and gently pinch ends together.
  7. Place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving 2 inches between cookies. Place small amount of chopped pistachios onto each wreath where ends are pinched together.
  8. Bake for about 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for about 1 minute. Remove and cool thoroughly on rack.

Maybe I left it in the fridge too long but I could not get this dough to roll out into a rope. It would break and crumble. I let the dough sit out for a few hours and tried again and same thing. I did leave it in the fridge overnight but I have never had a problem with doing that with other similar recipes. I ended up throwing the dough away because I couldn't do anything with half green/half regular dough that wouldn't roll out.
