Cheryl I am as glad you caught that- you combine the egg yolks with the remaining sugar and whisk until blended and add slowly to the pistachio mixture.
I have been house sitting for a blind and deaf dog and have to go to the House at 5;30 every morning and 3 other time during the day to care for her, everyday until August! So I have been a little tired. So sorry ladies. I have corrected the recipe- it will take a little time. Hugs to you all my friends.
