Pistachio Thumbprint Cookies

There is a traditional Moroccan dessert called a m’hanncha, commonly translated as snake cake. As far as I can tell, it’s an impressive rolled and coiled version of baklava. I thought about making this massive dessert, but thought it might be a bit much for my family to tackle eating in the next few days. And also, I really wanted a cookie. It’s that time of year, you know? So I took the flavors of the m’hanncha and translated them to something more bite-sized: Pistachio Thumbprint Cookies.


For the filling:
  • 2/3 c. shelled pistachios
  • 2/3 c. raw almonds
  • 1/2 c. powdered sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 TBS rosewater
  • 2 TBS honey
  • 1 egg

For the dough and topping:
  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 c. AP flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3 oz. white chocolate broken into small pieces
