Pistachio muffins

itryalot | Aug 29, 201104:24 AM

We were "gifted" as part of a hostess gift a dozen pistachio muffins which we served for breakfast. I barely got a nibble but DH managed to scarf one down before the rest were gobbled up.

The nibble I had was to die for, but a little too sugary for me; DH concurred after I asked him to smudge the green off his face!

Anyone made these and have a foolproof recipe? I imagine I need to locate pistachio paste/puree.

I was thinking of something moist; these were light beige in colour with a pretty even green colorataion, but very strong pistachio flavour, and smooth in texture, no pistachio pces except a few on top.

I know pistachio pudding is hard to find, but I am going to buy some in case I need it.

I found this site with a recipe, but the ones I had were not as dark inside (more pale with nice even spreading of green) and tops were much paler too.

I am wondering if pistachio BUTTER is substituted for regular butter. Would those be interchangeable?
