It's that time of year
When the world falls in love
Every song you hear seems to say
"Merry Christmas - May your new year dreams come true"
My new year dreams have dark chocolate, pistachio and sea salt in them - how about yours?
Dark Chocolate & Pistachio Cookies
slightly adapted from Joy the Baker
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup shelled pistachios, coarsely chopped
coarse sea salt for topping (optional)
Cream butter and both sugars until pale and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and mix thoroughly.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture and mix well. Mix in pistachios and chocolate chips.
Spoon dough (1 to 2 tbsp depending on how big you like your cookies) onto greased or parchment lined baking sheet and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 350 degrees for about 16-18 minutes or until golden brown.
