Ingredients
  

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 3/4 cup Dutch processed cocoa
  • 1 cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chunks can use chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pistachios
  • Sea salt for sprinkling on cookies

Instructions
 

  • 1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
  • 2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, sea salt, and cocoa. Set aside.
  • 3. With a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until smooth, for about 2-3 minutes. Add in eggs, one at a time. Next, add in vanilla extract and mix until combined.
  • 4. Gradually add flour mixture and beat until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips and pistachios. Scoop the dough into rounded tablespoons and place on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt.
  • 5. Bake cookies for 9-10 minutes, or until cookies are set, but still soft in the center. Don’t overbake. Remove from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 3 minutes. Move to a wire cooling rack and cool completely.
