Pistachio Torrone

[Photograph: Lauren Weisenthal]

I love torrone, the pillowy soft nougat candy filled with nuts. Traditional torrone, as the Italians intended it, has almonds, but I prefer the flavor and color of pistachio. Torrone is made with a mild honey, which imparts great flavor on its own, but I like to add additional flavor, either the seeds from a vanilla bean, some vanilla extract, or citrus zest.

This recipe, the best of four I tested from the web, has been adapted from the Martha Stewart Living.
