How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 275 degrees.
  • Cut cold butter in 1-inch cubes.
  • In a large electric mixer, mix the butter with the sugar on the lowest speed until it becomes a smooth, stiff paste.
  • Do not beat in any air.
  • Add the eggs one by one, beating only until smooth.
  • Sift together the dry ingredients and place them into the mixer bowl with motor turned off.
  • Mix on the lowest speed until smooth.
  • Add the pistachios and sultanas and mix gently.
  • Roll the dough into a 16-inch log, then cut it into two 8-inch logs.
  • Place logs on parchment-lined sheet tray.
  • Bake for 1 1/2 hours.
  • Remove logs from tray and allow to cool until they can be handled. Using a bread knife, cut logs with a gentle sawing motion diagonally at 1/2-inch intervals.
  • Lay the pieces flat on sheet pans and bake again until firm, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Store in an airtight container.
