Honey Pistachio Pancakes

Honey Pistachio Pancakes

Does anyone remember pistachios having a bright red shell?

I do! I thought all pistachios looked like that when I was younger. According to Popular Science,  all pistachios sold in the US were imported mainly from the Middle East until the 1970s. The harvesting methods used left blemishes on the shell so American importers used red vegetable dye to hide them. Now practically all pistachios sold in the US are grown in California and they are blemish free so no more red dye.

This breakfast is inspired by one of my favorite desserts, baklava. The pancakes are lightly sweetened with honey and are full of crushed pistachios. To add some crispness and more baklava flavor, chopped brown sugared wonton wrappers are sprinkled over the pancakes along with more crushed pistachios. Lastly, honey is poured over the top. No syrup needed here!

If you have a baklava loving mom in your life, this could be a great dish to serve for Mother's Day brunch. It provides the wow factor without having to spend hours in the kitchen.
