An Exquisite Brittle With Pistachio Recipe

An Exquisite Brittle With Pistachio Recipe

As soon as I saw this brittle with pistachio recipe I ran to the kitchen to prepare it. I love beautiful food and, especially, when it is simple and quick to prepare.

Pistachio is a delicacy by itself, and served as a brittle is just… irresistible.

It is really simple to prepare and it is a great idea for a gift, as it is pretty beautiful and special because of the pistachio.

I prepared this pistachio brittle recipe last Spring, but it is a recipe that has no season and fits any occasion. I found it on the great Italian blog Trattoria da Martina.

It is the kind of recipe I like to prepare when I am invited to dinner and want to present my guests with a sweet recipe; as it is enough to prepare it a couple of hours before dinner time.
