dark chocolate pistachio cookies | food junkie


okay, so let me start off by saying i am NOT a food photographer haha. i tried my best with the orange indoor lighting! haha. it was a good challenge stepping out of my normal photography comfort zone. i will definitely be trying this more often! it was fun, different, and the end result wasn’t too bad if i say so myself! 😉

i was online and saw the recipe for these DELICIOUS looking cookies! i was a little weirded out at first, by putting dark chocolate and pistachios together, but quickly got past that road block. i am so glad i did! such a great combination! i should have known it would be good since i LOVE the salty/sweet combo! YUM!!! 🙂

here are the ingredients:

1/2 cup (1 stick)  unsalted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips

1 cup shelled pistachios, coarsely chopped

**the recipe also suggests putting smoked sea salt on top of the cookies! YUM! unfortunately i did not have this, so my cookies lacked in this area. i’m sure both recipes taste yummy, though! 🙂

step #1 – melt the butter and pour that on top of the sugar and brown sugar; mix together.

step #2 – add the egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt

step #3 – blend together

step #4 – add flour, chips, and pistachios; stir

step#5 – scoop a spoonful of the dough and make a ball to place on the pan (TRY YOUR BEST not to eat the cookie dough – trust me, i know how hard that is!;)

step #6 – turn oven to 300 degrees and bake cookies for around 18 minutes or until golden brown!

step #7 – pour yourself a cold glass of milk and enjoy your treat! share if necessary! 😉

**lemme know what you think about this post! if you like it, i’ll try to do more! 🙂 **
