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.
- 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*
- In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat until melted. Remove from the heat.
- Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and stir until sugars are incorporated and smooth. Chill the mixture for 10 minutes in the fridge.
- Remove from the refrigerator and stir in the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla.
- Add the flour, oats, baking soda, ½ teaspoon salt, and cinnamon and mix together.
- Stir in the white chocolate chips, chocolate chips and pecans.
- 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.
- Chill, on sheet pan for 30 minutes in the fridge.
- 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!
