We hadn’t sweet dishes here for a while now, not to mention cookies. That has to change immediately! We are going straight to cookie season, that’s a fact (and I will give you some recipes then, indeed), but this is a recipe, which you can make throughout the year.

These cookies aren’t just cookies, these are the luxury version of the famous chocolate chip cookies! The idea is from Joy the Baker, the recipe – of course – from Smitten Kitchen.

I adapted the recipe to my European taste. American sugar amounts are just to high for my taste, almost every time. There has to be something wrong, when the amount of sugar is higher, than the amount of flour!

Pistachio and Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies with Smoked Sea Salt

Reading of smoked sea salt you might think “what the heck is she talking about again?”. A few months ago I saw it at my spice store and of course I bought it. There can’t be anything wrong with the flavour of smoke. And yes, it is terrific! It goes surprisingly well with the cookies, but I imagine it also goes well with other dishes, especially vegetarian ones. If you don’t have smoked sea salt, use fleur de sel, table salt is just too salty.

If you find this recipe too flamboyant, you can simply draw on my standard recipe for chocolate chip cookies. It’s frequently approved and I could fill my belly with these every time I make them. Yum, I should stop thinking about it…

    das Rezept klingt wirklich lecker, Rauchsalz hab ich schon gesehen, hab es aber nicht gekauft, weil mir nichts eingefallen ist, wo ich es verwenden könnte, aber die Kekse wären eine super Idee um es mal auszuprobieren, klingt total spannend =)

    LG, Stephi

    Wie schön grün die Pistazien geblieben sind!

    Mehr Zucker als Mehl klingt aber wirklich nach Kopfschütteln 🙂

    Pistazien und Rauchsalz kombiniert mit dunkler Schokolade klingt ziemlich(!) verführerisch. Vielen Dank für diese feine Komposition.

    Wunderschöne Bilder. Ich hab auch Rauchsalz da, kann mir das aber fast nicht in Cookies vorstellen. Neugierig bin ich aber schon…in die nächsten versuche ich ein paar davon MIT Rauchsalz.
