I am REALLY excited for my Chocolate Pistachio Cookies, they SO good.

I fell in love with pistachios in cookies when I created my dark chocolate chunk pistachio cookies. They are a favorite, I love them, but I decided it was time for a double chocolate version. My Chocolate Pistachio Cookies are made with cocoa powder and chocolate chunks. Chocolate lovers, you are going to LOVE these cookies.

The rich, chocolate cookies are filled with pistachios, chocolate chunks, and finished with a sprinkling of sea salt. The pop of green the pistachios makes the cookies festive and you will love the pistachio crunch!

Add Chocolate Pistachio Cookies to your to do list this week. Tis’ the season for COOKIES!

  1. These are amazing. I have never made cookies with pistachios! I just took them out of the oven and of course, had to try one (or 2)! Will certainly make these again. These are one of my new favoritesl


  2. Saw these on Instagram this morning and just had to make them (here I was thinking I was all done with my Christmas baking!) I am pulling them out of the oven now and they taste amazing! Mine didn’t spread as much (i think because I refrigerated the dough before putting it in the oven) but I am still really happy with how they turned out. I’m sure they will be a big hit in the box o’ cookies I hand out for Christmas.  Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!


  3. The only thing missing from this recipe is the baking powder, which was included in the original version. I just made them and with that exception they’re perfect.

  4. My dough came out a bit dry so I added a bit of water but these came out so delicious! I combined 3 types of dark chocolate since that’s all I had and a bit of cocoa nibs for the nutty bitterness and these were incredible! Served with good quality vanilla ice cream and our guests all raved about them. Thanks!
