Chocolate Drizzle Pistachio and Cherry Cookie Recipe

One of my all-time favorite treats during the Holiday season is any recipe with pistachios!  Today I’m sharing my Chocolate Drizzle Pistachio and Cherry Cookie Recipe.

When I worked at a local garden center years ago one of my favorite days was Pot Luck Friday.  Everyone would bring in homemade dishes that we would share for lunch.  I’m not the only one who loved that day …. the guys would always show up at the greenhouse from the barn where they were working on a tractor or from the farm field depending on how far into spring that Friday fell.   A sweet friend who happens to be Italian would always bring me this yummy chocolate, pistachio and cherry candy she had put together for a treat. I wish I would have had a smartphone back then because I would’ve had a photo to share with you featuring that yummy treat wrapped in foil. I was inspired by that combination to put together the Chocolate Drizzle Pistachio and Cherry Cookie I enjoy making during the Holiday season.

Chocolate Drizzle Pistachio and Cherry Cookie

This is one of my favorite recipes because it reminds me of the chocolate candy my friend Darlene use to make at the greenhouse only in cookie form.  The big chunks of dried cherries are so tender and moist even after baking.  Pistachio is a MUST in this cookie recipe – I can’t imagine any other nut adding the same experience.  I hope you take advantage of the Chocolate Drizzle Pistachio and Cherry Cookie Recipe printable recipe option on this page.
