I may not have any Christmas shopping done and our halls are not decked, but I do have cookies! I made  Dark Chocolate Chunk, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies and they are divine! That counts for something right?

If you are feeling lazy like me this month, make sure you buy shelled pistachios. Otherwise, you are going to be spending your day shelling pistachios. I guess that wouldn’t be a bad thing if you have a holiday movie to watch. Another reason to not be productive:)

These cookies are perfect! The edges are crisp and the centers are soft and chewy. The pistachios, dark chocolate chunks, and sea salt make the buttery cookies irresistible. The pistachios also add a festive pop of color which  makes them the perfect holiday cookie!

Ignore your “to do” list and bake Dark Chocolate Chunk, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies.

Either way, enjoy some cookies! Happy baking!

    1. I don’t recommend using it. It has a very different texture and consistency than regular flour.

  1. Loving the look of this recipe!

    Is it okay for the cookie dough to be left in the fridge overnight and then the cookies baked in the morning?

    1. If I don’t already know the conversion, I just ask Alexa

      Here’s what I used for the ingredients I weighed:
      180 g flour
      50 g granulated sugar
      165 g brown sugar

  2. 5 stars
    These are SO good! I have made them several times now, and am about to make them again as a gift for someone. Always very popular when I bring them to work or other functions.

  3. Just want to leave my gratitude and love for this recipe- my all-time favourite cookies. Perfect texture, magnificent flavour balance Every time I make them people are slack-jawed with amazement. I’m making them right now for a school do, and I am already prepared to send off a round-email the next day!

  4. 5 stars
    I really enjoyed these cookies! I swapped the chopped dark chocolate for a trio blend of white, milk and dark callets. Because of this the cookie was a bit on the sweet side, but was still really nice and moreish. Really lovely consistency, not cakey – more moist and gooey. My new go to!
