1 cup all purpose flour/maida
1/2 cup vanaspati/shortening
3/4 cup sugar powdered
1 tsp pista essence
2 tbsp unsalted pista cut into small pieces
Sieve the sugar and flour together to remove any lumps. Add the essence, pista and mix well. Add the vanaspati little by little and keep mixing till you get a dough. Make small balls of it and flatten them a bit.
Preheat oven to 180 deg. Arrange the flattened balls leaving some gap between each biscuit. Bake in convention mode for 8 mins. Cool for 10 minutes before storing in an air tight container.
* You can even add a bit of green food colour if you wish to..
