Pistachio Pudding Cookies Recipe

Pistachios and white chocolate chips are a match made in flavor heaven.

The rich, nutty and slightly floral flavor of the pistachios can be easily overpowered, but pairing them with white chocolate chips allows both flavors to shine. The pistachios provide a satisfying crunch while the white chocolate chips add a rich creaminess to these soft, tender cookies that just melt in your mouth.

It’s a completely unexpected twist on a classic chocolate chip cookie that will leave any pistachio fan smiling.

The subtle green hue of these cookies is 100% from the pistachio pudding mix added to the batter. If you want a brighter hue, you can add green food coloring.

These pistachio pudding cookies come together quickly, making them perfect for any occasion, but their green color makes them especially perfect for Christmas or St Patrick’s Day.
