Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

November 10, 2016

Thanksgiving is in exactly 2 weeks , and if you don’t celebrate it (like everyone in Lebanon, because its an American holiday), well, you should, because you are MISSING OUT ON GOOD FOOD.

I will be sharing with you a bunch of Thanksgiving dinner recipes in the next 2 weeks!

So, I had a bunch of Pecans, and I couldn’t find any corn syrup (not easily available in Beirut) to make my first Pecan pie. Off to the internet and there it was, a beautiful chocolate chip pecan cookie. It looked SO GOOD.

Check out the following recipe and prepare to eat one of the best cookies ever.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 ¼ cups light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup uncooked rolled oats
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips, extra for garnishing, if desired* ( I didn’t have any)
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips, extra for garnishing, if desired*
  • 1 cup roughly chopped, toasted pecans, extra for garnishing, if desired*

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until melted. Remove from the heat.
  2. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and stir until sugars are incorporated and smooth. Chill the mixture for 10 minutes in the fridge.
  3. Remove from the refrigerator and stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
  4. Add the flour, oats, baking soda, ½ teaspoon salt, and cinnamon and mix together.
  5. Stir in the white chocolate chips, chocolate chips and pecans.
  6. Roll by hand into medium-size balls or use a scoop, and place on sheet pans. If desired, tuck extra chips and pecans over tops of dough mounds for a lovely appearance.
  7. Chill, on sheet pan for 30 minutes in the fridge.
  8. Preheat the oven to 162˚C. Remove the cookies from the refrigerator and bke for 14-18 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow to cool for several minutes on pan, then transfer to cooling rack.

There you have it! They are so easy to make and are a real crowd pleaser!
