Pistachio Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Baking cookies is one of my favorite things to do. Well, besides eat them. Especially anything with chocolate in them. You add pistachios and I can't really ask for much more. Luckily, I had a giant bag of pistachios in the kitchen and was in a baking mood. So I decided to experiment with a cookie recipe.

If you are a chocolate and pistachio fan you are going to love these cookies. This is an adaptation of your regular chocolate chip cookies, but for the chocoholic. Delicious chocolatey cookie with rich chunks of chocolate and the added salty crunch of pistachios. YUM!  This recipe is really adaptable and would be great with any nut, or say dried cranberries. I love recipes like this because they are constantly being adapted and made even better!
