Apple & Pistachio Cookies recipe: Method

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Peel, core and finely dice apples. Place in a bowl; sprinkle with lemon juice to prevent apples from discolouring.

In a large bowl, beat egg with sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon and salt until sugar has dissolved.

Add sour cream and oil, continue beating. Sift together flour and baking soda in a bowl. Add egg mixture and diced apples; stir to form a thick batter.

Line a baking tray with baking paper. Drop the batter by the tablespoon onto the tray. Sprinkle with pistachios.

Bake cookies for about 16 minutes, or until the cookies have puffed up and  are golden brown.

Remove from oven, allow to cool slightly, then dust with icing sugar.
