All ingredients should be at room temperature.


  1. Mix butter and sugar until it is a light and fluffy butter mass.

P.S. A little tip – if you couldn’t find the peeled pistachios put on a good movie or a TV series while you do it, as it is a very time-consuming task but you would no soon enough that it is worth the effort.
