  • large baking sheet
  • parchment paper
  • Stand Mixer fitted with paddle attachment
  • Oven
  • Refrigerator



  • In the bowl of a stand mixer add the softened butter, and both sugars. Cream until fluffy, and combined.
  • Add the pistachio pudding mix, eggs, food coloring, and extract; continue to beat until combined.
  • In a small bowl whisk the flour and baking soda together. On low speed, slowly add the mixture to the batter. Combine until dough is thick.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips. Once they are mixed into the dough, remove the dough, form it into a ball, and place it in plastic wrap. Chill the dough for one hour minimally, or longer for best results.
  • Once dough feels firm, preheat the oven to 350°F. Use a 2 tablespoon-size cookie scooper, scoop out the dough balls. Place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet (2 inches apart as they do not spread) and bake for 10 minutes. The bottom edges will be slightly golden brown and the cookies will firm up as they cool. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and repeat until all cookies have been baked.


Nutritional facts may vary and are meant to be a guide.
These cookies last for up to 4 days at room temperature when stored in an airtight container. You can also freeze them or the dough balls for up to 3 months when stored in freezer-safe, airtight bags or containers. If baking from frozen dough, please add 1-2 minutes to the total baking time.
