Saint Patrick's Day Yumminess - Pistachio Cookies!

A quick and easy low sugar recipe for cookies you can use any day of the year, but they're great for Saint Patrick's Day.

Pistachio Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/3 cups baking mix
1 (3 oz.) package instant pistachio pudding mix
1 egg
1 Tbsp sugar

Grease cookie sheet.
Preheat oven (350 F)

To Make
Stir the butter into the pudding mix, and add the baking mix a bit at a time.

Beat the egg slightly, and add.

Stir in the sugar.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface. A shamrock-shaped cookie cutter is great for this holiday, if you have one.

Bake 9 minutes, or until lightly golden.
