I know that is a lot of stuff in one cookie. Once again I started with a open bag of pistachios that I wanted to get rid of (that’s how most of my baking starts) & then searched for cookie recipes on the Internet. I found a recipe by Joy The Baker called Dark Chocolate, Pistachio & Smoked Sea Salt Cookies. The recipe can be found here. I didn’t have any dark chocolate so I used milk chocolate & I had some pretzels that I thought I would add as well. I also didn’t have smoked sea salt but just regular sea salt. Those are the only changes I made to the recipe.
Ingredients: flour, sugar, brown sugar, egg, butter, pistachios, chocolate chips, pretzels, vanilla extract, salt & baking soda.
Cream together 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup unsalted butter, 1 egg & 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
In separate bowl, mix together 1 1/4 cups of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda and 1/4 teaspoon of salt.
Add to the creamed mixture.
Here is where things varied from the original recipe. I added 3/4 cup of chopped pretzels, 3/4 cup of chopped pistachios & 1 1/2 cups of milk chocolate chips.
Mix it all together. Yum…it tasted good even without baking it yet.
Scoop the cookie dough onto the cookie sheet & sprinkle with sea salt. I used a special pink sea salt that Christian & I received as a gift from a friend in Denver.
Bake for about 15-20 minutes at 350. They came out a little more crunchy than chewy but I still enjoyed them, especially with the salt & chocolate combination.
