Chocolate chip cookies with pistachios have just the right balance of sweet and salty. Mmm…
I’ve tried hundreds of different cookies over the years and I still believe the good ol’ chocolate chip cookie is my absolute favorite.
And despite my love for the classic chip-only variety, I do occasionally mix it up a little.
OR, in chocolate chip cookies with pistachios.
Chocolate Chip Cookies With Pistachios
The inspiration for these chocolate chip cookies with pistachios came from the half-empty bag in my pantry.
They were screaming to be either eaten by the handful OR incorporated into a recipe.
The latter won.
Roasted salted pistachios are a great addition because the saltiness counters the sweetness in the chocolate chips and cookie dough, and I’m a big fan of the sweet/salty collaboration in my desserts.
My soft and chewy classic chocolate chip cookies is a go-to for all my chocolate chip cookie recipes, including the base in this one.
In a twist I added pistachios and used whole wheat flour — I felt the chocolate and pistachio combo screamed for a more toothsome bite (but it’s perfectly fine to just use all-purpose if that floats your boat).
Simple and delish!
If you prefer, using entirely all-purpose flour instead of a whole wheat/all-purpose mixture works fine. As an Amazon Associate and member of other affiliate programs, I earn from qualifying purchases.
