- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup light brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3/4 cup chopped pistachios, shells removed
- 1 cup chopped dark chocolate
- Sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.
Using a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just incorporated.
Stir in the pistachios and chocolate chunks. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form tablespoons size balls of cookie dough. Place balls on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle cookie dough balls with sea salt. Bake cookies for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely. Store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
