Pistachios are one of my favorite snacks, so when I learned of pistachio butter, I of course immediately fell for the stuff. Unfortunately, it's not the easiest item to find on shelves in the United States. Fortunately, it's really quite easy to make.

I like to smear it on a fresh piece of bread (toast is pretty good, too) or a croissant, but its beauty lies in its versatility, so plop it onto ice cream, waffles ... you get the idea.

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces pistachios
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350° F. Line a shallow baking dish with parchment paper.

Place pistachios on the baking sheet and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes.

Remove the pistachios and let cool for another 5-10 minutes.

Add pistachios and salt to food processor.

Blend for at least 10 minutes, or more depending on how you like the consistency.

Enjoy!
