Ever since I fell in love with pistachio macarons, I haven't been able to go back to making almond ones. I just love pistachios! They have such a great taste, and are so versatile. I'm now attracted to any desserts that include pistachios, or "pinashios" as my dear little niece calls them.
I'd been waiting to try this pistachio cupcake recipe for so long now. But when I excitedly bought pistachios in St. Louis, I realized to my dismay that no one I knew there had a food processor or way to grind them. So I returned the bag and waited till I got home.
