Pistachios are my favorite nut. I love their vibrant green color and their distinct, salty flavor. Every Christmas season, I enjoy cracking them open and eating them by the handful. Our whole family just happily munches away. . . and I find shells everywhere.
These cookies highlight the colors and flavors of the famous Italian ice cream flavor, Spumoni. Red cherries meet green pistachios meet rich chocolate meets Christmas cookie. Mmmmmm. So tasty. And just so happy on any cookie platter. They look like a ton of work, but if you have a stand mixer, they’re really not too time-consuming. These soft, not-too-sweet, layered beauties would be delightful with a hot cup of coffee. Your friends and family will thank you.
