      I was so excited to make this, but ultimately let down. Don't get me wrong, it's delicious. In fact, in terms of just deliciousness, I would give it 4 stars. But in terms of the amount of effort it requires and the final presentation I only give it 2 stars. That averages the total recipe to about 3 stars. Peeling the pistachio 'skins' was incredibly time consuming. I wished the recipe had more direction on how to do it more efficiently. Finally, even after thoroughly greasing the pan and following the cooking and cooling directions to a tea, my cake fell apart when I tried to remove it from the spring form pan. The outside ring stayed in tack, but the sticky middle wouldn't budge. I ended up just eating that part with a fork, and storing the outside ring for dessert tomorrow.
