White Chocolate Pistachio Cookie Skillet
Hello & Happy Thursday!!
Believe it or not, when I was growing up, pistachio ice cream was my least favorite, however it was alway in our fridge.
Fast forward to today, I love recipes with pistachios!
While pistachios are typically in chocolate concepts, I was craving a pistachio and white chocolate sugar cookie! Instead of playing it safe, that one cookie snowballed into a cookie skillet, topped with ice cream, and a cherry sauce lol. If you don’t know, pistachios pair seamlessly with cherry anything!
Why I love cookie skillets..
They are easy, cook faster, have more flavor, great presentation, are fun to enjoy, and just a fun variation to the classic cookie
I love this recipe as it has everything above, a slight savoriness with the pistachios, a tartness with the cherry, and ice cream that just ties it all in together.
How I’d describe it: An effortless recipe that makes you look like you have a black belt in fab desserts!
If you’re looking to break away from the standard cookie concepts, you need to try my recipe for a vegan White Chocolate Pistachio Cookie Skillet !!
