|my pistachio gelatin|
I'm keeping this post shorter than usual and I'm gonna add a couple more pictures. I was in a car wreck a few days ago. I'm pretty sore and banged up, so I can't really handle sitting at the computer for any length of time. So, enjoy and hopefully I can give you a little more in-depth post the next time around....

Print me, Please!!!
1/4 cup vegetable shortening
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/2 cup sugar
5 oz pkg pistachio flavored gelatin
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup salted pistachios, roughly chopped
Preheat oven to 400°. Line baking sheets with nonstick foil or parchment paper.
Cream together the shortening, butter, sugar, and gelatin on medium high speed until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; beating for 2 more minutes. Decrease mixer to low speed, then beat in flour, baking powder, and salt until just combined. Fold in the pistachios.
Roll dough into 1" balls. Place on baking sheet 2" apart. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until lightly golden around the edges.
