Sicilian Pistachio Paste Biscuits

If you liked the traditional Sicilian Almond Paste Biscuit (you can find the recipe here), then you must try the version with pistachio.

Pistacchio di Bronte D.O.P. is the essential ingredient to exalt these delicious Sicilian biscuits.

I hope you will enjoy them 🙂
