Tasty cookies with a subtle pistachio flavor.

1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 (3.4 ounce) package instant pistachio pudding mix
1/2-2/3 cup chopped pistachios (make sure they are unsalted)
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda

The photos illustrate a halved recipe. Your proportions will be larger if you make the full recipe that yields about 4 dozen cookies.

Step 1: Wet Mixing

1-2. I had to hand cream my butter and sugars, so photos 1-3 illustrate a solution. I grated cold butter and whipped the sugars into it with a fork. If you have a hand or stand mix, you can cream the butter conventionally.
3. Whip the egg into the creamed butter mixture.
4. Add the pudding mix, vanilla and chopped pistachios.
Should add some green food coloring.
