These rich and decadent chocolate cookies are given a delicious nuttiness through chopped pistachios and a warming spice through cardamom. 

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Break the chocolate into pieces and place in a heatproof bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until melted. Take off the heat. Using a hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until smooth and creamy, before gradually incorporating the beaten eggs.
  2. Fold in the melted chocolate, flour, ground cardamon and chopped pistachios, then spoon the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 10 minutes, remove from the oven and set aside to cool for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
