Pistachio White Chocolate Chip Cookies

During my ongoing cookie surprise battle with Susan at Organized 31, I experimented with a lot of different cookie doughs. The one that I had the most fun with the pudding mix dough. During my last trip, I picked up every variety of pudding mix I could get my hands on, which is how I came up with the Almond Joy Cookies that used coconut creme pudding.

Pistachio Cookies For St. Patrick’s Day

This week’s creation is inspired by pistachio pudding, whose green color makes for a great St. Patrick’s Day cookie. The pistachio cookies are also a great treat for your favorite pistachio lover.

On my first experiment with these pistachio cookies, I only used one box of pistachio pudding mix and the result was a cookie that tasted like a regular chocolate chip cookie and it had just a slight green tinge. I decided to modify the recipe to increase the pistachio flavor and the green color. All of my testers agreed this final version was better. I hope you enjoy these as much as my family did.
