Dark Chocolate Pistachio Butter Cookie Bars

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 2 cups (10 oz) shelled pistachios
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 (12 oz) bag dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt


Place 2 cups shelled pistachios into the work bowl of a food processor. Process for 10 minutes until smooth and creamy. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line an 8×8 baking dish with foil, then coat generously with non-stick cooking spray.
With a mixer, beat pistachio butter, softened butter, and both sugars on medium-high speed for 3-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add flour and mix on low speed until just incorporated. Stir in dark chocolate chips. Press dough into prepare pan.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes until top just starts to turn golden. Let bars cool completely in the pan set on a cooling rack before cutting. Middle may be slightly gooey when you first pull these bars out of the oven, but will set up as they cool. Top generously with a coarse finishing salt like kosher salt or fleur de sel.
