Pistachio Chocolate Chip Cookies

My sister came up with this idea, and I have to admit a pretty genius one at that! If you loved these chocolate chip pudding cookies from before, then you'll love these pistachio ones. It is the same recipe, but instead of using vanilla pudding, use pistachio! It makes for a delicious green cookie, perfect for St. Patty's Day! You can even add a little bit of green food coloring to give it a more green look, since it is hard to tell from this picture. Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

I love the versatility of this recipe and how it can be changed using different puddings. Pistachio sounds like a delicious way to change things up and make a really special cookie. Thanks for linking these up to Sweets for a Saturday.

These look delicious! I've never seen pistachio flavoured pudding mix before. I actually made these cookies too a while ago but butterscotch flavoured. They were so fantastic and soft!
