1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoon's vanilla yogurt or you could use plain yogurt and 1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups chopped pistachios. (on the finer side, but some larger chunks are okay)
orange marmalade or apricot preserves
In the bowl of a mixer blend butter, sugar, brown sugar and yogurt until creamy. Add the egg, beat well to blend. In another bowl, mix flour, cinnamon, cardamon, and salt. Add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts.
Chill for at least 2 hours or over night.
Using the medium scoop, scoop out 1 tablespoon sized ball of dough and place them on a parchment lined baking sheet. Place your thumb in the center of each one to make a nice impression, not all the way to the bottom.
Bake at 375 for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool completely on racks.
When cooled fill the impressions with orange marmalade or apricot jam and dust with powdered sugar. Apricot jam worked well, I used it since I was out of marmalade.
