I am obsessed with all things pitashio. I always have been. From the time I was a little girl I would only get pistachio ice cream when we went to our local ice cream parlor with my grandpa. My sister would get Mint Chip and my brother, Cookies n Cream. To this day I snack on pistachios pretty much daily, so when I came across pistachio macarons from a friends blog I knew I had to try one!
Renaud's Patisserie is located in a busy shopping center in Santa Barbara so make sure you find a parking spot and walk passed the crowd eating on the sidewalk. Go straight for the counter and ask for at least one of each. My favorites were the pistachio of course as well as the caramel. The chocolate and coffee were my least favorites so next time I will probably stay away from those.
