On a work surface, knead quickly chopped almonds with the flour, the butter into cubes and a pinch of salt. Create a smooth and homogeneous mixture and give it the shape of a cylinder, wrap it in plastic wrap and store in the freezer for about half an hour. After the rest, cut the logs of dough and shape crescents you will place on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. Bake the cookies for about 15 minutes at 170 ° C and when the biscuits are cooked, but not too colorful, take them out the oven and let cool on a rack. Pass them while slightly warm in powdered sugar. Put in a blender the cookies with almond flour and orange peel until mixture is fine. Melt the white chocolate in a double boiler and when it is melted, remove from heat and add the oil gradually trying to get a smooth and homogeneous mass. Mix the chocolate biscuits and let cool in the freezer for about 20-30 minutes. Using a spoon, take parts of the mass and form 32 small balls, which you will pass in the chopped pistachios. Store the cookies in paper cups and store in the refrigerator, covered.
