Eggless Kaju Pista Cookies Recipe |Cashew Pistachio Biscuits

Eggless Kaju Pista Cookies are perfect tea time snack, which are delicious with the nutty combination of cashews and pistachio. I prepared these cookies with whole wheat flour and added cardamom powder for the flavour. I am very happy that they came out very well.

  • Whole wheat flour-11/2 cup I used chapati wheat flour
  • Unsalted butter-½ cup
  • Powdered sugar-½ cup
  • Cardamom powder-1tsp
  • Custard powder-2tbsp
  • Baking powder-1tsp
  • Finely chopped cashews-3tbsp
  • Finely chopped pistachio-3tbsp
  • Salt-½tsp
  • Milk as required


  • In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, powdered sugar until they are creamy and fluffy.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, custard powder and chopped nuts in the butter mixture, along with salt. Mix them well.
  • Add 2 tablespoon of milk to the mixture and combine well to form a soft dough. If the dough is dry add one more tablespoon of milk.
  • Place the dough on a cling film and shape it into a log.
  • Then wrap it tightly and keep in the refrigerator for at least 2hours.
  • Once the dough is chilled, preheat the oven to 180°C
  • Line and grease the baking tray with parchment paper.
  • Now slice the chilled log evenly and place the cookies carefully in a baking tray and bake for 10-12 minutes or until you see the edges turning into golden colour. (Here mine done at 12 mins)
  • After taking the tray out from the oven, allow it to cool in the baking tray for 5mintues before transferring on to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Enjoy delicious and crisp Kaju Pista cookies with a cup tea/coffee.


If the dough mixture is dry add an extra 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk.
Don't forget to keep the dough in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours.
