It's kind of a pain to shell all of the pistachios (and a huge challenge to keep your family from stealing them) but it's totally worth it. This is also a great cookie for Christmas with the green pistachios and the red cranberries. I like to replace some (half, usually, unless I'm running out of butter) of the butter with applesauce so that the cookie has a cakey texture. Otherwise, replacing the raisins in your standard oatmeal-raisin cookie recipe, and throwing in an equal amount of crushed pistachios will get you to this delicious cookie.
