pistachio pie

This was a true surprise for me, since I have come across this recipe quite often and never really decided to give it a try. If I left out the part that I was unable to find pistachios without their shell, and I had to actually open each one of all those you see in the picture (oh, yes, I totally destroyed my fingers, let alone my manicure)… I would say this is a pretty easy recipe, which leads you to a really delicious desert! Never mind the calories, it is too early too start worrying about our bodies in bathing suits! Enjoy 🙂what_
1 piece of pastry (300 – 350gr)
225 gr fresh butter
250 gr sugar
3 eggs, preferably organic
125gr soft flour
250 gr pistachio, powdered
15 plums, seedless

Start by mixing together in medium or high speed the butter, the sugar and slowly add the pistachios, for about 8 minutes.
Then, add one by one the eggs, and when you see the batter becoming fluffy, we stop beating, add the flour and start mixing it with a spatula softly, until the mixture becomes homogeneous. In a 24cm wide pan we spread the pastry, so that its edges are covering our pan.
Use a fork to make small holes all over your pastry and then pour in the pistachio cream. Dig in the plums and let it cool for approximately half an hour. Then bake in preheated oven at 180 C for about an hour. After you take it out of the oven let it cool for a while and decorate with confectioner’s sugar.
