Little Chefs Bake: Happy Nut Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Happy Nut.. that’s what my boys call Pistachio nuts. 

We super love this nut and today, we are going to try baking cookies with it. Today’s cookies is super simple to bake. No mixer is required as we are using the knead method. 

It is our first try yet I am happy to report that it is a success! 

350g self-raising flour
100g pistachio nuts (coarsely chopped)
75g chocolate chips
100g fine sugar
175g salted butter (cubed)
1 egg (lightly beaten)

Rub butter in flour until mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
Add sugar and chocolate chips.
Add egg.
Add pistachio nuts and mix.
Knead until smooth.
Roll dough and cut out using cookie cutter.
Arrange cookies on trays
Bake in preheated oven at 170C for 20-25 minutes or until cookies turn golden brown. 
Cool on wire racks.

This is the first time we baked cookies using knead method and the boys love it! They kept saying it’s like playing with Play-Doh :lol:

The cookies ready to go into the oven. 

Cookies freshly out of the oven, cooling on the wire rack. 

Ayden’s favourite little HOUSE shaped cookie. After all, HOME is where our HEART is ♥

As usual here is the video of the boys baking this super simple yet awesomely delicious Happy Nut Chocolate Cookies. I’m so gonna bake this for Chinese New Year.

      The younger boy always pronounce Pistachios as Pikachu… Now he calls them Happy Nuts. LoL. He can never get Pistachios right :D

    My girl loves choc chop cookies but she can’t eat those now. The gluten free ones are not as nice, not quite the same. :(

    • //

      Such a pity. I can’t imagine my life without cookies :(

  • //

    Happy nuts? Eat already will feel happy? :p

    • //

      Eat dy will be very, very happy :D

  • //

    So these cookies are crunchy or chewy type?

    • //

      They are crunchy as I baked them for 20 – 25 minutes. If you bake for 15 minutes only, they are soft cookies. I prefer them to be crunchy thought.

    I like to eat pistachio too so I think these cookies are so delicious!
