For your Cookie Swap: Chocolate Pistachio Nut Bar Cookies
This recipe for pistachio nut cookies with a chocolate drizzle is easy to make. Each cookie has about 100 calories too, so they don’t break the calorie bank.
The cookies are first rolled into a dough and then baked in a large rectangle which is later cute into smaller bar shaped cookies.
