St. Patty's Day Treat

In honor of St. Patrick's Day, I made this recipe for pistachio shortbread (suggested to me by Lara). Probably not a traditional Irish dish, but it is green. The one tricky part was that the dough was so dry and crumbly that it took forever getting it to form into anything. Luckily, it was easy after that because you don't roll it out and cut cookies, you just press the dough into a round pan, bake, and then slice into wedges. Kind of like eating a pie crust without the pie.
Very tasty.

  1. yay! glad you liked it. i also made it this past weekend. very crumbly, i was afraid it would not hold together even after baking. i put the nuts on top, and it actually made it a bit too salty.

    i ALSO made the irish car bomb cupcakes this week and brought them into work. they were outstanding and supa rich.
