You can't pinch me if I made something GREEN!

Just what you've been waiting for...more COOKIES! Pistachio Cookies at that. Quick and simple made from cake mix (of course, I haven't exhausted my cake mix cookies ideas yet!)

So run by the store and whip some up for your family tonight!

Blarney Stones

1 box white cake mix (yellow cake not recommended for the cookies will be a yellowish/green)
1 pkg. pistachio instant pudding
4 egg whites
Green food coloring
1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp oil
3/4 c. ground pistachios
Semi Sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix white cake mix with pudding. Grind up pistachios in food chopper and add to dry mix. Mix egg whites and oil together and add enough green food coloring to make you happy. The pistachio pudding will be slightly green but perhaps not enough to get a darker green. The desire is too get a good color of green...we don't want our cookies looking like lil' vomit piles, hence the reason for not using yellow cake mix. Add the liquid to the dry and mix. The dough should be soft firm. Place by mini ice cream scoop onto cookie sheets. Don't flatten them for you want them to look like little rocks. Cool on cooling racks until room temperature. Melt chips and dip bottoms of cookies in the chocolate. Place in fridge to set. Enjoy!

Kiss Me, I made you the last of St. Patty's Day Goodies!
