  11. Elaine,

    You have outdone yourself with this recipe. Looks divinely delicious. For a non-baker like me, a perfect holiday dessert.

    Buona Festa!

  12. On our Philadelphia weekend trip we tried VETRI as per Frank Bruni's recommendation, and it was as good, if not BETTER than our NYC restaurants!
    Lovely cookies!

  13. I never really liked pistachio recipes/gelato growing up.... but in the last few years I'm really coming around.

  14. I made these cookies last night. The ingredients are pricey but they are very delicous and worth it for a special occassion.

    My first batch didn't spread very well. I think my fridge might be too cold. I'm going to try letting the balls sit out on the cookie sheet and come to room temperature before putting them in the oven. Thanks for the great recipe, we'll be enjoying these every Christmas now!

  15. These look delicious - they would be perfect with a hot cup of chai. I have a lot of pistachios left over from the holidays and am going to try these...do you think I can make them w/o a mixer - i.e. mixing with a hand whisker/hands? My baking skills haven't quite elevated me to buying a mixer...

  16. I should add that I'm just about ready to commit to the Kitchen Aid mixer and after reading your How to Make Fresh Pasta post think I'm sold given reviews I've been hearing about the pasta attachment that can be purchased for it. Thanks!!

  17. I have to confess that Vetri is on my "Restaurants I MUST try" list and have made a mental note for my next Philly trip. Also, this book is fabulous - it's one of my faves! Great post!

  18. This Pistachio Cookies looks so beautiful with the colors, I'm sure it'll be a big hit with the kids! Nice colors! Although I'm to a big fan of Pistachio Cookies, this sure looks yummy! I'm normally the one that will say no to Pistachio Cookies.
