Chocolate chip cookies can serve as the base for numerous recipe adaptations. Lately I’ve been on bit of a pistachio streak and included them in my chocolate chip cookies.
It’s incredible how a few simple adjustments can make such a difference in a basic recipe. Not only did I include the pistachios, but I added a bit of almond extract to get that nutty amaretto flavor. That combined with the semi-sweet melted chocolate chips and sprinkle of sea salt did wonders to the ole faithful recipe.
