Pistachios, when eaten with high-carbohydrate foods, may result in lower than expected blood sugar levels, an important factor in reducing risk of diabetes.
1 cup Water
½ cup Butter or margarine
1 cup Flour
¼ teaspoon Salt
1/3 to ½ cup Shredded Swiss cheese
¼ cup Natural American pistachios, finely chopped
Heat water and butter in medium saucepan until water boils and butter melts. Add flour and salt all at once; reduce heat. Stir vigorously until mixture leaves side of pan and begins to form a ball. Remove from heat. Add eggs one at a time; beat well after each addition. Continue to beat until mixture has a satiny sheen. Stir in cheese and pistachios. Drop by spoonfuls onto large greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° F. 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
