The 'Food52' blog recently put together a recipe for making gluten-free cookies that feature the delicious taste of pistachios. Although pistachios are a popular choice for sauces and other savory dishes, they are not usually found in traditional desserts such as cookies. Instead, many cookie recipes feature nuts such as almonds, pecans and peanuts.

This recipe puts an expected twist on the traditional cookie recipe by adding raw pistachios and a dark chocolate glaze. The dough is also infused with cinnamon and cardamon, which gives the nutty dessert a hint of spice. While the cookies are delicious, they are also completely gluten-free. Instead of flour, the cookies are held together by pistachio meal.

These gluten-free cookies are the perfect way to enjoy the wholesome flavor of raw pistachios.
