Nutritional Facts

1 cookie equals 156 calories, 9 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 12 mg cholesterol, 52 mg sodium, 19 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 3 g protein.

Directions

  1. Place egg whites in a small bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Place confectioners' sugar and pistachios in a food processor. Cover and process until pistachios become a fine powder.
  2. Add salt to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Fold in pistachio mixture.
  3. Place mixture in a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe 1-in.-diameter cookies 1 in. apart onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and firm to the touch. Cool completely on pans on wire racks.
  4. Place chocolate in a small bowl. In a small saucepan, bring cream and corn syrup just to a boil. Pour over chocolate; whisk until smooth. Whisk in butter. Cool, stirring occasionally, to room temperature or until filling reaches a spreading consistency, about 45 minutes. Spread on the bottoms of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies. Yield: about 1-1/2 dozen.
