I was given a huge bag of pistachio nuts at Christmas. I love them, but can't possibly eat them all. Does anyone know of any recipes they're used in?

Substitute them for walnuts in choc. chip cookies or for macadamina nuts in white choc chip cookies. I second nut breads. Make a bunch and freeze.

You can freeze them and use as needed. I am not sure exactly howl ong they will keep though.

Melt choc chips, throw in a handful or two and spread it on waxed papers and chill. Very yummy!

Do you work? As long as a co-worker didn't give them to you take them to work and either put them in the breakroom or on your desk.

I make a muslei type thing. Take Rolled Oatmeal and put it in a container. Add splenda or sugar to taste. Also cinnamon about 1/2 tsp. Then cover with milk and let sit in the fridge all night. The next AM I add some fruit -bananas, raisins, frozen blueberries and then sprinkle with chopped nuts -especially pistachios.

I make pistachio-crusted salmon a lot. Spread mustard or mayo or horseradish on one side of salmon and then press on a mixture of breadcrumbs and pistachios. (I usually just put a piece of bread in the food processor with the pistachios.) Melt butter/oil in a skillet and cook crust side down a few minutes, then turn it over and let it finish in the oven until the fish is cooked through. I suppose you could do the same thing with chicken if you don't eat fish.
