With St. Patricks Day (sort of) coming up, I figured I should probably share some kind of green treat– green (red) velvet cupcakes already happened in December, so the obvious next choice was, of course, a cookie. If we’re going with green cookies, the only real option is pistachio 🙂 These cookies are seriously as moist as can be, and have the absolute perfect amount of pistachio flavor mixed with just enough sweetness. If you love pistachios, you’ll be seriously into these cookies.
You will need:
3¼ cups all-purpose flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 small package (3.4 ounces) pistachio flavored instant pudding mix
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons milk (preferably whole milk)
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
¼ cup pistachios, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Pre-heat your oven to 325, and start off by whipping together your butter and sugar. Add eggs, and combine completely. Stir in milk and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder, salt and pudding mix, and add to the wet mixture. Once well combined, fold in your pistachios and chocolate chips. Scoop rounded tablespoons on to a prepared cookie sheet. If you’d like a little extra sweetness, sprinkle with sugar, and bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until the edges are slightly browned. Move from cookie sheet to wire rack and let cool.
