- 4 eggs
- 1 package (3.4 ounces) instant pistachio pudding mix

Reviews for Pistachio Puffs
"These were delicious"
"these puffs taste very good however, something went wrong. They rose really good in the oven but when I slit them open on the cooling rack they went flat. I actually tried them again but the same thing happened. what did I do wrong? or was it a flaw in the recipe? Also there was too much filling, probably because the puffs were so flat that I could not get much filling in. I've tried the recipe twice, and still has some filling left over. I will try again to use up the remaining filling."
