      The name has made some people question trying it. I'm not sure what about pistachio sounds unpleasant in a dessert, but they are all won over with the first bite. Thanks for the compliment, glad you enjoyed it.

      My ex-mother in law used to make this and I have to say it is absolutely DELICIOUS!!! For some reason, I put off trying it for a while but when I finally did, I could not believe how wonderful it was. I guess I just didn't figure it would be so rich and tasty.. to me, the pistachio pudding almost tastes like chocolate, or similar anyway.. it's definitely rich and that bottom crust is to die for. GREAT hub recipe!! Thank you for sharing :)

      I made it again yesterday and it was a hit. You're absolutely right about making little ones. There are so many combination options.
