Crisp Chocolate Chip Cookies with Dried Cherries and Pistachios

Although they're flatter and crisper than the classic Toll House cookie, these still have lots of chocolate chips. "Natural" pistachios are the green ones, not the ones that have been dyed red.

Perfect, with some changes
November 21, 2012
I've made this recipe before, as written, and it was just fine -- the cookies came out crispy, loaded with goodies. I made some changes this year, however, to see what I could come up with. What I discovered was how to make this cookie both fluffy (meaning, not a pancake-like cookie), and chewy.
Substitutions made: bread flour instead of AP; dark corn syrup (it's what I had on hand), and used Earth Balance for my lactose-sensitive family. I also have used more nuts/cranberries, and have alternated dried cherries and cranberries. I got a puffy, tender-textured cookie that holds its shape. I cooked them on dark metal pans, with parchment, no spray or other oils, for approx 10 minutes.
Pros: Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again
