Pistachio and Chocolate Chip Cookies
I love pistachios. By far they are my favourite nut and I’ll put them in anything I can. Of course pistachios and chocolate are a match made in heaven, so I made cookies.
1 cup oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
1 cup crushed pistachios
Preheat oven to 200 degrees C
Crush Pistachios. I like to just put them under a towel and take the rolling pin to them until they’re as crushed as I like.
In a large bowl, mix together the oil, butter, brown sugar and white sugar until you’ve got it well mixed and most of the brown sugar lumps are gone or small.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition, then stir in the vanilla .
Mix in the chocolate chips and pistachios.
Add the flour, salt, and baking soda and mix well.
Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until light brown.
Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
