Easy Pistachio Cookies!

I made these and took them to class, since the recipe makes like a billion!

Everyone asked for the recipe, they are simply delicious, cute and
so easy to make.  I'm glad I came across this recipe. I decorated them
with chocolate and chopped pistachios but honestly they are better just as is.

recipe adapted from The Italian Dish

- 1 c softened butter
- 8 oz. softened cream cheese
- 1 t vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 2 1/4 c flour
- 1 package instant pistachio pudding

- 1/2 t salt

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Beat sugar, butter and cream cheese. Add vanilla and egg.
In separate bowl, combine remaining dry ingredients; whip
into butter. Refrigerate at least 1 hour.

3. Shape teaspoonfuls of dough into round balls and arrange
on baking sheet.

Let cool and decorate.
