The dark chocolate and pistachios in these Pistachio Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies take classic chocolate chip cookies to a new level!
These cookies. They are really going to be the end of me. I have been trying to eat healthy since we got back from our trip. Because as much as I want to believe that gelato three times a day is normal, I know it isn’t. But then I made these cookies, and I can’t stop eating them. Do other people eat three cookies in one sitting?? Let’s go with yes, because these Pistachio Dark Chocolate Chunk Cookies are just too good to only have one. They are salty and sweet, soft but still chewy, and just bursting with dark chocolate – cookie perfection.
I had a friend in town this past weekend, so she helped me taste test these pistachio dark chocolate chunk cookies! And sat through my food photo shoot….thanks Mere! But they passed her test, phew. It is always so fun to have people around to eat my baked goods!
Pistachios are one of my favorite nuts. I love the flavor, the color, the saltiness. But for some reason, I’ve never baked with them! In fact, it is rare that you find pistachios in cookies. Walnuts and pecans seem to get all the cookie love. Well not anymore for me – I am all about the pistachios! Especially in these chocolate chunk cookies.
Pistachios and dark chocolate are a match made in heaven! And there is no shortage of either in this cookie. I used two dark chocolate bars and cut it into chunks, which resulted in big pools of melty dark chocolate – so good! Just make sure you grab a napkin before you eat one!
