Arabic Shortbread

Nochodchi [no-cho-chee] is chickpea flour made into something very similar to Scottish shortbread. So, Arabic Shortbread if you will.

You'll need chickpea flour,

and icing sugar,

as well as cardamon to taste, butter to bind and split pistachios for texture and colour.  Mix all four ingredients together

and then roll up into a long sausage and put it in the fridge for up to six hours:

After it has rested find the cookie cutter,

unwrap the cold sausage of chickpea flour,

and make your cookies:

Bake them in a preheated oven 160 deg C for 30 mins and et voila, chickpea shortbread:
