Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Plate of pistachio cookies

If you are looking for an easy green treat to feed your loved ones today, try these pistachio cookies. They’ll take 20 minutes including clean up time and be gone in no time flat.

{Cute new spatula was a spring gift from my friend John. Chirp!}

Ireland is one of the prettiest places I’ve ever visited. I’d love to return and spend more time in Galway and Cork in particular. In the meantime, it’s green Ace Pear Cider and cookies for all!

    i’ll be spending the day today with the fam at the st. paddy’s day parade where my hubby will be sporting his kilt….dear lord!

    and the funny thing is, he’s italian, not irish 😉

    how lucky are to have visited ireland. that’s on our travel list.

  3. I’m making these cookies today!! Thanks for the recipe 🙂
    Hope you are having a great weekend so far…take care!

  4. Galway’s the best. A lot of people visit Dublin and think that’s typical Ireland, when it couldn’t be further from the truth. Happy Paddy’s Day!

  5. Precious spatella…where did he get it?

  6. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Kelli! I spent the morning leading a birding fieldtrip for Tucson Audubon Society–we had a grand time. In the published trip description, I told them that if they wore a bit o’ the green, then I would give them a treat. I found yummy little wrapped St. Pat’s mints and gave those out.

  7. How cool is your spatula!!!

    Unfortunately I don’t like pistachio nuts. In fact I don’t like nuts at all I always think that they taste like wood … not that I actually eat wood either !

  8. Happy St Patrick’s Day Kelli! Not Irish so no celebrations, but your cookies look gorgeous!

  9. Yum! Those cookies look awesome & that spatula, way too cute! Do tell where he got it!

  10. Top o’ the mornin, Kelly.
    Boston is a very Irish town, and my husband, well he likes to imagine he is right off the boat. Ireland is a beautiful country, as you know. Some of our favorite parts were, the Aran Islands, we slept in a thatch roof cottage, the Dingle Peninsula is breathtaking and Kinsale, mere words cannot describe. The Irish people, the Irish pubs, the Irish landscape, they all make for a wonderful vacation. I can’t wait to go back.
    I will save this recipe for next year I think it will go well with green beer.

  11. Looks very yummy!

  12. Ohh, those look good girl!

  13. oh man, that spatula is awesome!! 😀
