    These were SO good. I am not a big fan of white chocolate but thought I'd give them a try and just loved them. I followed the recipe exactly, except I needed 2 or 3 more mins. of baking time. Could have been because it was an extremely humid day. Save yourself some time and buy the already shelled pistachios. It took me 45 MINUTES to shell the cup and a half I needed. I then determined that the shells weighed the same as the nuts so when it's all said and done, you aren't saving a great deal by buying the ones in shells. I bought unsalted pistachios, I think next time I would buy the lightly salted ones, just to give them a bit more flavor. Also, one pkg. of white chocolate chips didn't quite make 2 cups, more like 1-3/4 cups, but it tasted fine. I used a small ice cream scoop and got exactly 7 dozen cookies. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  26 Sep 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I used 1 cup of shortening instead of 1 1/2, and 2 cups of white chocolate chips. Using less shortening helped keep them more consistent, but unfortunately the chocolate was a little overpowering. I would suggest only 1 cup (maybe 1 1/3 cup) of chips, and more nuts. But overall very tasty!  -  06 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
