Gluten-Free Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe

Valentina K. Wein
These Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies are super interesting cookies. They're incredibly delicious, inherently gluten-free, and the perfect bite for the holiday season.
Please note that the prep time does not include making the pistachio butter, which takes about 10 minutes. (Here's How to Make Homemade Pistachio Butter)

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F and cover a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Add the pistachio butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar to a large mixing bowl. Use an electric mixer to blend the ingredients together until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Fold in the semisweet and white chocolate chips, and then use a 1 1/4-inch cookie scoop or your hands, to form (approximately) 1 1/4-inch balls of dough. Place them on the parchment-covered baking sheet as you go. They'll spread just the tiniest bit, so it's okay if they're close together.
  • Bake in the preheated 325°F oven just until they're set, about 9 minutes. If they still look a bit doughy, that's okay -- they'll firm up a bit more outside of the oven, and slightly under is better than slightly over!
  • Let the cookies cool for at least 10 minutes on the baking sheet.
