I had a hand full of people around for my birthday and thought I’d treat them to a snack which was a fraction more elegant than a bowl of nuts, pistachio biscuits!
They were so easy to make, light to eat and they were snapped up in no time at all – which has to be a good sign, right?
As an added tit-bit, did you know?
- Pistachios are one of the oldest flowering nut trees; humans have eaten pistachio nuts for at least 9,000 years.
- In Iran, pistachios are known as the “smiling nut.”
- In China, it’s called the “happy nut.”
