Dark Chocolate, Pistachio and Smoked Sea Salt Cookies

Dark Chocolate, Pistachio and Smoked Sea Salt Cookies

  • Author: foodnerd4life
  • Total Time: 32 minutes
  • Yield: 16 1x


Adapted from Joy’s Recipe


  • 1/2 cup Unsalted Butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Soft Brown Muscovado Sugar
  • 1 Large Free-Range Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Pistachio Extract
  • 1 1/4 cup Plain Flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 1/2 cup Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Pistachios (shelled and roughly chopped)
  • Smoked Sea Salt Flakes (for sprinkling)


  1. Preheat the oven to 175C. Line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat the butter, the sugars until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add the egg and beat for 1 minute. Add the vanilla and pistachio extracts, until mixed in.
  3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt to the butter mixture and beat on low speed until well mixed. Beat in the chocolate chips and pistachios.
  4. Scoop the dough, about 2 tbsps of the mixture (I used half the amount as they were pretty chunky bad boys!) About 6 cookies to a tray and leave plenty of space between them to spread. Sprinkle with smoked sea salt.
  5. Bake until golden brown, around 10-12 minutes. Let them cool for 5 mins before removing from the tray. Can’t say they will hang around too long!
