Pistachio White Chocolate Chunk Cookies
  • 12 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
  • 8 tablespoons spectrum organic shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons good quality vanilla
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups raw pistachios, coarsely chopped and divided
  • 10 ounces white chocolate chunks
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in milk and vanilla.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
  4. Place oats in food processor and pulse to chop them up a bit, leaving some texture.
  5. Add flour mixture and chopped oats to butter mixture in 2 or 3 additions. Mix well. Fold in 1 cup pistachios and all of the white chocolate chunks.
  6. Cover and refrigerate at least 30 to 60 minutes.
  7. Using a generous tablespoon cookie scoop measurement, drop mixture onto parchment lined baking sheets. I used large sheet and only put 9 cookies on because they do spread a bit. Lightly press remaining pistachios on top of cookie dough.
  8. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges are golden brown - the center may still look a bit underdone. Let cool for 3-5 minutes on the baking sheet before trying to move to a wire rack. I got about 53 cookies
