We always have a bag of pistachios in the snack cabinet and spumoni ice cream has always been a favorite – I’ve been known to go out for Italian for dinner just so I can have spumoni ice cream for dessert 😉 I’m not sure why I’ve never used pistachios in a recipe like; Pistachio Smoothie, Creamy Cranberry Pistachio Fudge or No Bake Pistachio Ice Box Cake.
Being big fans of pistachios, I knew we’d like pistachio cookies.
The addition of dark chocolate chips and a sprinkled of sea salt….makes them hard to resist.
Let me share a little tip about the pistachios. You can, of course, buy them in the shell and shell them yourself, but that’s going to take a while. Do yourself a favor and splurge on the no shell pistachios (I found a small 6 ounce bag at the grocery store for about $6). Then use a nut chopper to chop them in no time. If you don’t have a nut chopper, you’ll need a good sharp knife to chop them.
You can certainly opt to leave the pistachios out of the cookies, as the pistachio pudding will give them flavor, but the added crunch and flavor of the nuts is worth it!
The soft pistachio pudding cookie with dark chocolate chips sprinkled with sea salt is the perfect combination. These would be so fun to give out on St. Patricks Day, on an Easter dessert table or even just as a treat after school.
This recipe makes about 30 cookies. Be warned though, you may want to make a double batch because they’ll disappear quickly.
