Pistachio almond chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. So good! 

The other day my husband came home with a bag of pistachios not in their shell.

I love a pistachio but, for me, part of the enjoyment of eating them is dealing with the shell. It might have something to do with when I was a kid and my finger tips would turn red from the shells- anyone else remember that?

My challenge was to find a use for these pistachios.
We've all probably tried the chocolate chip cookie with peanuts or walnuts. A certain mall store probably put an extra five pounds on me thanks to their macadamia nut cookie. So, why not try pistachio cookies?

I made my cookies sugar-free and low carb using Tova Carbquik Low Carb Bake Mix, Splenda , and Hershey's Sugar Free Chocolate Chips .
