"The usual goodness of chocolate chip cookies but made better by replacing the chips with white chocolate chips and adding chopped pistachios. These make a beautiful presentation. " — Wendy

1 1/2 cups
whole wheat flour
white chocolate chips
1 1/2 cups
chopped pistachio nuts
These were SO good. I am not a big fan of white chocolate but thought I'd give them a try and just loved them. I followed the recipe exactly, except I needed 2 or 3 more mins. of baking time. Could have been because it was an extremely humid day. Save yourself some time and buy the already shelled pistachios. It took me 45 MINUTES to shell the cup and a half I needed. I then determined that the shells weighed the same as the nuts so when it's all said and done, you aren't saving a great deal by buying the ones in shells. I bought unsalted pistachios, I think next time I would buy the lightly salted ones, just to give them a bit more flavor. Also, one pkg. of white chocolate chips didn't quite make 2 cups, more like 1-3/4 cups, but it tasted fine. I used a small ice cream scoop and got exactly 7 dozen cookies. Thanks for a great recipe!
I used 1 cup of shortening instead of 1 1/2, and 2 cups of white chocolate chips. Using less shortening helped keep them more consistent, but unfortunately the chocolate was a little overpowering. I would suggest only 1 cup (maybe 1 1/3 cup) of chips, and more nuts. But overall very tasty!
These taste very good, but they do flatten considerably and can be somewhat difficult to get off the pan. I think it has to do with too much butter and shortening . . .I think I'll go with 1 cup next time instead of a cup and a half. The cookies are delicious, though! Thanks for the recipe!
What a great cookie! I was looking for something different for my Christmas baking, made a batch last night and of course had to sample a few with my neighbor. They were great! I really didn't mind that they thinned out a little, it just seemed to make them all the better!
It was a real Hit at parties where there were Real Chef's!!! I enjoy this a lot and lots of my friends requests it now.
Good cookies. I reduced the sugar by 25%. These taste better the day after they are baked. Also, you should flatten them before baking; they barely spread at all. Dough freezes well too (I am baking a batch using premade, frozen and thawed dough).
I didnt even add enough pistachios but these were still tasty! But they did bake a little flat.
