Time to take a twist on the sugar cookie.  These Pistachio Sugar Cookie Bars are topped with Cream Cheese Frosting for a dainty bite of delight.

Pudding is so versatile, serving as both a stand-alone dessert and as a richness and flavor enhancing ingredient in many baked goods.  Some of our favorite cake recipes have pudding added to the mix and it really heightens the complexity of the final result.



The Golden Lining Girl is adding pistachio pudding mix to her sugar cookie recipe for a completely new spin on these flavors.  Top with tangy cream cheese and chopped nuts, and it’s a combination of textures and profiles that is sure to delight pistachio lovers.  We also love the color that the pudding provides, making these the perfect finale to a girly tea party or shower.
