Phew, what a lot of work! I thought "save some money and get pistachios in the shell and just do the work myself". Yeah Right! Don't do what I did, spend the extra couple bucks! I spent 1/2 hour just shelling the nuts. The flavour and texture were great, but there are many recipes out there that are far less work that turn out just as good.
Oh, and don't forget that tomorrow is the big Holiday Bake-n-Blog, be sure to check out my post tomorrow about my "Pummies"
