love this idea to try - could I try using a muffin pan or would that just be totally no good at all?

Hi Tanja, you definitely can use the muffin pan - it will not affect the baking process at all. It is traditionally baked in an oval shape to look like a gold bar as the name suggests.

About

If I was sleeping, I would dream about lying down underneath a giant pistachio tree in my own orchard. It was a routine I always did after a busy day of producing a range of pistachio goods in my factory.

In reality, it was midnight and I couldn't sleep. But my love for these tasty nuts wasn't only in a dream. Baking pistachio and lime friands seemed to be the most comforting substitute moment when my dream was a little to far to reach ... (sighed).
