Chocolate Pistachio Gelato Sandwiches

Yum
With the advent of March, two holidays are just around the corner.  Let's get going with St. Patrick's Day which is celebrated whether Irish or not!  I will be sharing lots of green themed recipes in honor of the wearing of the green.  So, if you don't have anything green to wear, at least you can eat green!
I know, most people, especially the kiddos, would prefer anything but green food.  But, you will want some of these recipes for sure!  Starting with a sweet treat cause those are my absolute favorite!

  
Gelato is delicious any season!  If it is still winter in your neck of the woods (that would be me), just crank up the heat and enjoy these frozen treats!  Homemade chocolate cookies made in a whoopie pie pan and scoops of your favorite pistachio gelato.  Nothing fancy, just simplicity that makes your taste buds water.  Just store in your freezer anytime you want a little frozen treat.


Ingredients to make 6 gelato sandwiches:
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup flour
3 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
nonstick spray
pistachio gelato
Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Prepare a whoopie pan with nonstick spray, set aside.  With an electric mixer, beat sugar and butter until creamy.  Add eggs, mix well after each.  Blend in flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.  When well combined, mix in vanilla.  Fill each whoopie pie cup with just enough batter to cover bottom.  Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.  Remove from oven and pan.  Cool on a wire rack.  Assemble by placing one cookie face up.  Add a scoop of pistachio gelato and top with another cookie.  Keep in freezer until ready to use.



Ok people, think green and maybe that white stuff will disapper?  You know what else will disappear?  Chocolate Pistachio Gelato Sandwiches!  Probably before St. Patrick's Day.

Now that's some green you will want!
