Cantuccini Chocolate and pistachio

This dry cookie is one of my favorite cookie ^^.

Because of the dryness, eating it with a cup of coffee is the best, dipping it in a cup of hot Latte is my way of eating. There are many recipes for this kind of cookie, I love the recipe that contains some fat (oil or butter), so the cookie won't be too tough. It's good for giving too ^^, because of the dryness, this cookie can be kept longer than regular cookies (for 2 weeks). The key for baking is make sure the cookie baked throughly and let it cool before cutting, and you will get beautiful cookie (the cookie will be crumbly while hot so don't be rush).
