Ahhh, back to posting! My posts have been absent due to my trip home to the U.S. I am actually writing this on the eve of my return to Italy (for tomorrow's Sweet Melissa Sundays reveal). Dedication!
This recipe was hosted by Michelle of Flourchild. Check out her blog for the full recipe.
I made 2 of these pies to bring to my Grandma's house. My family had a party for me so that everyone could visit at the same time. The reviews were excellent. Everyone seemed to really enjoy the unique taste. The review was: slightly tart with a hint of nuttiness due to the pistachios. A bit of sweet and savory for the start of summer desserts!
I will say that I had trouble finding fresh sour cherries or frozen (as did everyone else in the group)... but I googled sour cherries and found out that that frozen "pie cherries" are just another name for sour cherries. I too could not find shelled unsalted pistachios. I had to shell the nuts myself and I ended up soaking them in water to remove some of the saltiness. Also, I did not add quite as much salt as the recipe called for in the crumble.
