Today is a very special day for me. Akshayakumbham is celebrating itโ€™s 3rd Anniversary. I would like to thank all my readers for making it a big success. On this special  day Iโ€™m posting pista cookies to celebrate the occasion. 
Pista cookies 
Pista cookies are super quick snacks and can be prepared so easily. Iโ€™ve used maida, powdered sugar, little milk, vanilla essence, crushed pistachios and butter to prepare the cookies. Dough is prepared with the ingredients and baked in an oven@170 degrees for 10-15 minutes. Cookies are allowed to completely cool down for one hour and served with cup of tea or coffee. Here I present mouthwatering pista cookies ๐Ÿช to relish anytime. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
