Let's Make It
Cream butter and sugar in large bowl. Add almond flavoring and food coloring. Stir. Add flour, cardamom and 1/2 cup pistachios. Dough will be dry and crumbly and may require use of your hands to mix until no visible flour remains. Pack and form into 2 rolls, about 1 1/2 inches in diameter each.
Spread second half of pistachios over 12 x 12 inch sheet of waxed paper. Roll dough in pistachios to coat completely. Wrap in waxed paper. Cover with plastic wrap. Chill for several hours or overnight.
Cut into 1/4 inch thick slices. Arrange about 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake on center rack in 375°F oven for about 15 minutes until edges are golden. Let stand on sheet for 2 minutes. Remove to wire racks to cool. Drizzle with chocolate.
