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!
i loved the cookies. they were just phenomenal the the salty-ness of the pistachios brought out the sweater side of the cookie. the brown sugar and the white sugar combination was just wonderful and it just brought the chewyness to the cookie. it was just a very delicious cookie!!
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).
