shelling for baking
the grocery stores are hopeless cases for pistachios. when i have the time i go to my favourite nut shop at the farmer’s market, but as usual harris farm came up trumps this evening when other’s shelves were sans the green gems. tonight i made pistachio and lemon icebox cookies for gift giving. i adapted a recent gourmet recipe for pistachio cranberry cookies and will use the dried cranberries for something else. perhaps cranberry gingerbread.
