Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies

The ultimate combination. Don’t be afraid to take these out of the oven a little early–they are incredibly soft and chewy!

The sea salt, dark chocolate, and pistachios complement each other perfectly, and make this easy recipe taste gourmet!

Dark Chocolate, Pistachio, and Sea Salt Cookies
Makes 2 Dozen Cookies

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all-purpose Gold Medal flour
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup chopped pistachios, shells removed
1 cup chopped dark chocolate or dark chocolate chips
Additional sea salt, for sprinkling on cookies

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with a Silpat baking mat or parchment paper and set aside.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set aside.

3. Using a mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add the egg and vanilla and beat for an additional 2 minutes.
With the mixer on low, slowly add in the dry ingredients. Mix until just incorporated.

4. Stir in the pistachios and chocolate chunks. Using a spoon or cookie scoop, form tablespoons size balls of cookie dough. Place balls on prepared baking sheet, about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle cookie dough balls with sea salt. Bake cookies for 12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer cookies to a wire cooling rack and cool completely. Store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.
