Notes about this recipe

    I liked these - agree with laurenlangston that they need to be baked a lot longer than Ottolenghi states. Depends on your oven I guess, but mine took about 30 minutes to cook. Entering them for the Muswell Hill and District Horticultural Society Spring Show cookery class for shortbread - wish me luck!

    Deliciously heavy on the cardamom. These do not look like the picture. I even got a ruler out to measure these things as I was cutting them, but after 35 minutes in the oven (recipe calls for 20) they still were not the least bit brown on top.

    Should be called Cardamom Shortbreads w/Pistachios. Very nice flavor and texture, but nobody loved.
