Pistachios, Dark Chocolate, and Sea Salt...Oh My!

I know, I know, it's been a while since I posted some deliciousness.  It has been a crazy week, but I'm back now, and boy have I got a cookie for you!  I saw this recipe over at Two Peas & Their Pod and made very minor adjustments.  

Now, about this cookie: pistachio and dark chocolate cookies, sprinkled with a bit of sea salt.  They are chewy with just a touch of crisp on the edges and the salt enhances the sweetness of the chocolate.  Mouth-watering goodness, don't you think?  Go ahead, I'll wait while you wipe the drool from your mouth.  Finished?  Okay, let's get to the recipe!

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 stick salted butter, room temperature
1/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pistachios
1 cup chopped dark chocolate
Sea salt for sprinkling top of cookies

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Line two baking sheets with a Silpat or lightly grease them with butter.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and baking soda.  Set aside.
  • Using a mixer, cream the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.  Add the egg and vanilla and beat for 2 more minutes.  Turn the mixer on the low setting, and slowly add in your dry ingredients.  Add in your pistachios and chocolate.  
  • Using a cookie dough scoop, form scoops and place them on your baking sheet, 2 inches apart.  Sprinkle the cookies with sea salt.  Bake for 14 minutes.
  • Cool cookies on a cookie sheet.  Once cool, pour yourself a glass of milk, and enjoy!
