Another Favorite Recipe-Pistachio Chip Cookies

Here is another recipe that has been a favorite of everyone who has ever tasted these scrumptious cookies. I found this recipe in a magazine many, many years ago and it has been a huge hit ever since. The recipe came from a pistachio farm somewhere here in the US. I wish I could remember the name of the farm and where it is located. I'd love to give them the credit for this wonderful recipe! Although these cookies aren't among the traditional Christmas cookies we all make every year, it is a recipe that I always make at Christmas time as it is requested by many. Maybe because of the green from the pistachios? After all, green is a Christmas color! I hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

Pistachio Chip Cookies
  • 1 -1/4 cups butter or margarine, softened
  • 2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 -1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 12 oz. package vanilla chips
  • 1 -1/3 cups chopped pistachios, divided
In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla: mix well.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and oats: gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in chips and 1 cup pistachios.

Cool 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. YIELD: about 5 dozen.
