This is not very difficult, but the instructions are far more complicated than necessary.

I want to try this recipe but I have a question. Am I right in assuming that the pistachios are to be unsalted?

Hello jovs5- Kirsch is a liquer. When you click on the blue link for the lady fingers, it will explain the cake rounds to you. If you are making them by hand rather than buying them, that's where you'll find the recipe and instructions.
