Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies, I am all about the cookies! These pistachio chocolate chip cookies are absolutely fabulous!

I don’t usually like nuts in my cookies but these are an exception! I really loved them!

I highly suggest you eat one warm, the drippy melty chocolate combined with the salty crunchy nuts and the chewy dough, so so amazing!

What you need,

½ cup butter, at room temperature
¼ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1½ cup all-purpose flour
¾ tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. baking soda
¼ tsp. salt
¾ cup chopped pistachios, I used salted ones cause why not!
1 cup dark chocolate chips, I used Ghiradelli

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silpat mat and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer beat together the butter and both sugars, until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and beat until well incorporated.
Stir in the vanilla.

Add the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Mix on low until the flour mixture is fully incorporated.
Fold in the the pistachios and chocolate chips.

Drop the dough by the heaping tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheet.
Bake the cookies for 9-11 minutes, or until just lightly browned around the edges.

Cool the cookies on the pan for 3-4 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Store in an airtight container for 5 days, these cookies freeze really well too!

These cookies really are to die for! The salty crunch of the pistachios with the bitter sweetness of the chocolate chips, such a great combination!
