Pistachio Cupcakes – soft, buttery cupcake with the subtle flavor of pistachios, topped with slightly sweetened whipped cream flavored with pistachio oil. Price available upon request.
nuts about pistachios
Pistachios are my second favorite type of nut meat after cashews. Shelling them may be a pain in the fingers, but the health benefits you get from eating the nuts are enormous that you wouldn’t mind having a raw finger or so. We all know now that nuts are healthful but studies have shown that pistachios are the most nutrient-packed nut. It helps lower cholesterol, keeping the heart healthy and is a good snack choice for diabetics.
So I am happy to offer this pistachio cupcake. It is soft, buttery and has an appealing natural light green color (no food coloring used!) and has a lingering taste of pistachios due to the finely ground nuts. The icing is made of slightly sweetened whipped cream subtly flavored with pistachio oil.
