    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a tray with parchment paper and set aside.
    2. Using a handheld mixer or a stand mixer, beat butter and sugar together. Add in egg yolk and vanilla until well combined. 
    3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, cocoa powder and salt. Fold into butter mixture.

    5. Coat the cookie dough in egg white and then roll in chopped pistachios until completely covered. Place on tray and press the center of the dough gently to make a well. 
    6. Bake cookies for about 10~11 minutes. Gently press the center of the dough once again if the well has disappeared.
