You know how much I love Chocolate Chip Cookies. I’ve been reading how olive oil is the new great ingredient to bake with so I decided to make an Olive Oil Chocolate Chip Cookie – and I added pistachios for fun! These cookies are crispy on the edges, chewy in the middle and have a hint of olive oil flavor. These are so good, it’s insane!
How many chocolate chip cookies can I make? Oh I can make a ton – I love all kinds of cookies and I love experimenting with my favorite…chocolate chip!
I was so excited to make these – the idea of olive oil in a cookie intrigued me for sure. I’ve had one before, in Kansas City, and it was so good!
The cookie dough is similar to “regular” chocolate chip cookies except it’s a little more glossy because of the oil. It tastes amazing though.
I added pistachios because they were on my counter and I loved the addition – you can leave them out of you’re not a fan though!
Chocolate chunks are a must – big fat chunks of semi-sweet chocolate make the cookies so pretty and they pair well with the pistachios.
For another level of flavor, a little sprinkle of fleur de sel added a nice touch. You know…salty and sweet is the new thing. If you don’t have fleur de sel (flaked salt), just a pinch of course salt works well, too!
Definitely add these cookies to your list – they’re a fun take on a chocolate chip cookie and feel like you’re eating something really special!
Give them all to me!
