Gluten-free Salted Choco Pistachio Sablés

• 2 1/2 cups almond flour
• 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa flour
• 3/4 tsp kosher salt
• 1/4 tsp baking soda
• 1 1/4 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
• 1 1/4 cup (lightly packed) brown sugar
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 egg white
• 5 oz bittersweet chocolate, chopped
• 1 cup unsalted,raw pistachios, coarsely chopped
• Flaky sea salt

Whisk flour, cocoa powder, kosher salt and baking soda in a medium bowl. Set aside.
Using an electric mixer at high speed, beat butter, brown sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy (about 4 minutes).
Reduce speed to low and gradually add dry ingredients; mix just to combine, then mix in egg white. Fold in chocolate and pistachios.
Divide dough into 4 pieces. Roll each piece into an 8”-long log. Wrap tightly in parchment paper and chill until firm, at least 4 hours. (The colder your dough, the easier it will be to slice.
Heat oven to 350°.
Working with one log of dough at a time, use a serrated knife to cut logs into 1/4” thick rounds and transfer to a parchment lined cookies sheet, spacing them 1/2” apart.
Bake 10-12 minutes, until set around edges.
Remove from oven and immediately sprinkle with flaky salt. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
