  • 1 tbsp rice flour
  • 400 g unsalted pistachios*
  • 3 tbsp honey
  • 1 - 2 tsp rose water


  • 20 g salted pistachios



  1. Toast the rice flour in a pan over medium heat. It should not get dark in the process, as otherwise everything will taste bitter, so be patient.

  2. Grind pistachios finely in a blender until they release some oil and look like a dough. But do not overmix, otherwise they will give off too much oil.

  3. Add rice flour, pistachio, honey and rose water, knead the mixture well again by hand. 

  4. Pour into a square mold and smooth everything with a small roller. 

  5. Put in the refrigerator for about 2 -3 hours. 

  6. Cut the mixture with a sharp knife into 2-3 cm wide strips, then diagonally into equally wide diamonds, lift from the tray with a pallet. Or just cut out diamonds with a diamond-shaped cookie cutter as I did.

  7. Place a whole salted pistachio in the center of each.


Layer in a tin between baking paper and store in the refrigerator, they will keep for about 3 - 4 weeks.
