Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

It has been a while since I posted a good cookie and thought this one would fill the bill.

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3/4 tsp. baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

In a large bowl, beat the butter, vanilla, eggs and both sugars until fluffy. This will take 2 full minutes. Add the egg and yolk amd mix in.

In a separate bowl whisk together all the dry ingredients and slowly add to the butter mixture, beating only to combine well.

Stir in the oats and pecans.

In your hand, scoop out 2 tbsp. of the dough, roll into a ball and set on prepared baking sheet. Continue until all the dough is used.

Bake in the oven, one pan at a time, for about 13-15 minutes. Cool on rack for 2 minutesĀ  and then transfer cookies to racks for cool completely.

Make sure you have a pot of coffee (or tea) at the ready ‘cuz you won’t want to share with anyone. HA!
