You will love this recipe, fast & easy to make. I usually use Duncan Hines yellow cake mix & Jello brand pistachio pudding. I use walnuts instead of pecans as they are cheaper. It is moist & has such a great flavor. Friends, family & co-workers beg for more! Best part is no one knows it is made from a cake mix. Happy baking & eating. " The Famous Redqueen"

It doesn't taste like Pistachio. Good though. Moist.
