Ma' Moul Abiad

62 gm powdered sugar
125 gm ghee at room temperature
250 gm all purpose flour
unsalted pistachios - remove shells

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Mix powdered sugar and ghee in a large bowl using your hands. It will look like pancake batter (pale yellow & slightly runny).
Add the flour and continue mixing by hand until the dough no longer sticks to your fingers. Cover the bowl with plastic and refrigerate briefly (about 10 minutes). Remove from the fridge and knead the dough gently with your fingers.
Take a small piece of the dough and form a ball about the size of a ping pong ball. Flatten the ball until it is about 1/4 inch thick and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, and then press one pistachio on the center of the cookie. Do this for all remaining dough - should make about 12 cookies.

Bake at 300 degrees for 8-10 minutes until bottom of cookie becomes lightly golden.
Remove pan from oven and allow cookies to cool on the pan for 10-15 more minutes so they can harden before you try to move them.
