Grind the pistachios in a food processor until fine.
In an electric mixer cream together the butter and castor sugar until smooth and creamy. Mix in the egg yolk, vanilla and cardamom. Add the pistachios. Slowly beat in the flour until fully combined and the dough has an even consistency.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
