I recently had the yummiest pistachio pastry at our local Whole Foods.
I’m big for recreating things …. so I did!

BUT, I created my own version which ended up being a bit different.

These are not overly sweet which is just how I like my “sweets”.
If you are a sweet, sweet lover than I’ll give an edit/option to the recipe for you.

They are SUPER easy to make also.
Perfect for breakfast OR snack.

First, go to your local grocery and pick up some puff pastry sheets.
I used Pepperidge Farms.

Next, let them thaw as directed on the package.

While they are thawing, make the pistachio almond filling.

The filling consists of 8 oz of almond paste, 10 oz package of pistachio nuts and water.
I used my Vitamix to blend but a food processor or coffee bean grinder would work as well.

  • Grind the nuts and paste with enough water to create a creamy paste.
  • Here is where you can add in a bit of sugar if you would like your pastries sweeter.

It should look something like this…..

You can add green food coloring to make it a bit more green.
I didn’t because I don’t feel the need to have it be a fake-y green.
But you certainly can, if you like.
Might be fun for St. Patrick’s Day, etc.

Once the pastry sheets are a bit softened, lay them out onto a cutting board.

I used a pizza knife to cut into 4 squares.

Spread the filling evenly onto the center of the pastry squares, diagonally.

Sprinkle with sliced almonds.

So, to make them a bit sweeter, you can add a little sugar to the filling as you are grinding it up.
AND/OR, you can also drizzle warm honey over top, once cooked. (as shown below)
