craving pistachios.

When my father-in-law visits Iran he always brings back a few bags of persian pistachios  for us. Lately I cannot get enough of them! Thankfully according to Dr.Weil (Dr. Oz's buddy), "pistachios are great for digestion - they are low-calorie and full of nutrients and fiber." um okay...  I won't stop snacking :)  I'd also like to find a few sweet and savory recipes that incorporate the nuts:
sweet// cran pistachio cookies (perfect for St. Patricks Day!) - baklava cups - pistachio wedding cookies - pistachio cake  - Persian pistachios - and savory// pistachio-basil pesto - shaved brussels sprouts with avocados and pistachios (so many good things all together in one dish!) - easy goat cheese appetizer

Do you have any favorite pistachio recipes?
