Whenever I go on holiday or for a short break, I prefer to go to a different destination each time. There are simply so many beautiful places to visit, and there are only so few days of holiday. But I have some exceptions from this rule and Rome is one of them. I love this city. I could walk there for hours every day, and it doesn’t matter to me that I have already seen some of the places there several times.
While we were wandering around Rome a few years ago, we came across a bakery. It was tiny and not fancy at all, but the biscuits on display looked appetising and – as we checked later – they tasted divine. We ended up going there almost every day; we also recommended it to everyone who was going to Rome. Oh, I didn’t mention this was also Julia Robert’s favourite cookie place when she was filming “Eat, Pray, Love” in Rome.

So whenever we went to the Eternal City, this little bakery was a staple point to visit, almost like Fountain di Trevi or the Colosseum. And then last year we found out it was not there anymore. Supposedly it moved to a different location, but we never found it… We have missed all their biscuits so much that I knew I would have to try to recreate at least the favourite type: pistachio cookies. I adapted the below formula from an Italian recipe for almond biscuits. They are probably not the same as the original cookies from the bakery, but I can assure you they taste wonderfully of pistachios and Rome.
