Who knew there was a pistachio month? I sure didn't, but I was munching on a few pistachios and wondered what desserts (aside from your goopy Watergate salad) could be made using pistachios. The result? I came across some of the most amazing pistachio desserts that I never knew existed.
So here are my pistachio dessert top picks that may just make you nuts.


Pistachio Cheesecake. What a delicious miniature treat for someone who loves cheesecake (like me). They're made with a brown sugar crust, fresh whipped cream, and crushed pistachios by Magnolia's Bakery in New York.


Pistachio Pudding Cookies. I could almost taste these cookies from the pic! They look absolutely delicious, and they're, absolutely, the first on my list of pistachio desserts to try at home. There's a recipe for them over at Cookies & Cups Blog. What a sweet way to enjoy pistachios!


Spumoni Cake. This darling would look beautiful on the table for a pink themed party, Easter, or an AKA gathering. It's layers are filled with moist cherry chip cake and pistachio vanilla buttercream. I love the pink and green colors, and can visualize this cake gracing the table of many party themes. You can find this beauty at Sugar Hero.

Mango Kulfi. This traditional Indian ice cream will make you dance (at least it made me dance). I had this dessert at a local Indian restaurant, and it was truly an amazing version of ice cream. The combination of flavors in this dessert are unique, but they're very flavorful. You can make this pistachio dessert at home. Visit Kurryleaves for the recipe.

The Cassata. This baby deserves a place on a table all by itself! I can't resist the combination of chocolate and pistachios, but this is, by far, your ordinary cake. Use Real Butter gives you step by step tutorial for pulling this cake off yourself. Chocolate and nuts? I'm definitely in!

Try these desserts in celebration of Pistachio Month this month and share them with me right here. I'd love to see how they worked out for you.
