Pistachio Dreams...

I was craving dessert...something light yet tasty....This dessert hit the spot!
This would be great for a last minute dessert. Or....Perfect for Mother's Day, & easy enough for the kids or Dad to make. Besides it LOOKS & TASTES A--ma--zing!
 Pistachio Dreams Recipe:

  • 1 can of Reddi Wip whipped cream
  • 1 small package of instant Pistachio Pudding Mix, make according to the instructions on the box
  • 2 cups of cold milk for the pudding, see the pudding box for amounts & instructions, **I used 1 cup of milk & one cup of whipping cream 
  • 10-12 Shortbread cookies, crushed into med to small pieces, reserve one cookies per dessert for topping
  • 1 tablespoon of melted butter
  • 1/2 cup of unsalted & shelled pistachio's , roughly chopped into pieces
  • 4 glasses or jars to layer desserts

Mix the Instant Pudding mix and milk together, place in the refrigerator to set.  It should be set in about 5-10 minutes. *I use 1/2 whipping cream for 3 reasons: Lower Carb, Sets up faster & tastes richer.

Crush the cookies in a plastic zip lock bag.
Chop the nuts, divide in half

Take half the nuts and mix with the crushed cookies. Drizzle the melted butter over the mixture. Place on a cookies sheet and broil on low heat for 5-10 minutes. Let cool


In a glass or jar, start layering dessert items in this order...*I used Mason Jars:

1. Cookie Crumb mixture
2. A squirt of whip cream
3. a dollop of pudding

Layer again, 1 more time,  in the same order

Top with whip cream, sprinkle with nuts & top with a whole cookie

A Clear Glass or Jar works the best so... You may set & admire your creation!

**Sugar free Ingredients work perfectly...That's what I used!

This Dessert is Creamy, Dreamy & Full of Style...
