This recipe is adapted from one which was in the May Issue of Delicious Magazine and accredited to Middle Eastern Chef Sabrina Ghayour. From the moment I saw it I was intrigued . . . dark chocolate? Pistachio nuts? Count me in! I love both those things!
Another plus is that it doesn't make tons of cookies. I don't need to be having tons of cookies around the house. They get in my mouth, and I can't be dealing with that.
When it comes to cookies or cake (or crisps for that matter) I have little to no willpower. No matter how hard I try to resist, I always cave . . .
If you like dark chocolate and you like pistachio nuts, then you are gonna basically adore these cookies. Seriously scrumptious.
Break out the tea pot because they beg to be eaten with a nice hot cuppa something moreish. But I'll tell you about that after I give you the recipe for these tasty little babies.
*Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies*Makes about 16 or so
I was really surprised. It wasn't until I had the first tray in the oven I realized I had completely left out the caster sugar. DANG! No problemo, they were edible just the same . . . and scrumptiously so.
The tea I chose to drink with these was the Bellevuetea loose tea infusions. There is something really nice abut loose tea . . . a whole pleasurable experience that you don't quite get from a bad. Measuring out the tea, letting it steep, and then straining it. Its quite a comforting exercise.
Today's choice for me was Bellevuetea Sweet Orange Rooibos. I love Rooibos tea. This Sweet Orange Rooibos tea is a naturally sweet herbal infusion from South Africa blended with bright safflowers and a natural blood orange flavour which creates a sweet and zesty infusion which is caffeine free. This is one I think children would enjoy. The naturally sweet and nutty rooibos is complimented by the fresh and zesty flavour & aroma of sweet oranges. This caffeine free infusion will sooth and relax. Delicious hot or cold, with or without milk.
I always take mine straight up and black. Coz that's how I roll.
I was also sent their Very Berry and I have been enjoying that as well. This one is a caffiene free infusion composed of a colourful selection of summer fruits and berries, making for a deliciously fruity hot drink. Or Iced. I often enjoy herbal infusions, cold and over ice. Try it! Just steep with a bit of honey, strain and then chill in the refrigerator and serve over ice. Its quite refreshing!
