  • – 1 ½ sticks of salted butter equivalent to 170 grams
  • – ½ cup of roasted pistachios ground into nut butter
  • – ½ cup of granulated sugar about 100 grams
  • – 1 cup of packed dark brown sugar around 200 grams
  • – 2 large eggs
  • – 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • – ½ teaspoon of almond extract
  • – 2 ½ cups of all-purpose flour about 300 grams
  • – 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • – 1 teaspoon of fine sea salt
  • – 10 ounces of dark chocolate chopped
  • – ½ cup of roasted pistachios chopped
  • – Extra chopped pistachios for topping optional


  • Start by making your pistachio butter. Just toss ½ cup of pistachios into a food processor and blend until smooth.
  • To brown your butter, melt it in a pot over medium heat. Keep stirring until it turns a beautiful brown color.
  • Mix your pistachio butter into the browned butter.
  • Add in both types of sugar, then mix in the eggs and extracts.
  • Stir in the flour, baking soda, and salt until everything’s combined.
  • Finally, fold in the chocolate chips and chopped pistachios.
  • Pop the dough in the fridge for at least 24 hours.
  • When you’re ready to bake, let the dough sit at room temperature for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (about 175°C) and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Scoop out the dough into 80-gram balls (that’s about the size of a small apple). You should get around 13 cookies.
  • Flatten the dough balls slightly and pop them in the oven for 18-20 minutes.
  • Halfway through baking, take the trays out and tap them on the counter to flatten the cookies a bit more.
  • Once they’re done, give them another tap on the counter and sprinkle some extra chopped pistachios on top while they’re still warm.
