Dark Chocolate and Pecan Cookies
These soft, chewy dark chocolate and pecan cookies are a more sophisticated version of the traditional chocolate chip. They’ll quickly become a favorite.
I feel like I haven’t posted a cookie recipe in a long time. Maybe I got burned out during the Christmas season with all the cookies during that time. But don’t you worry. Cookies and I are BFFs. Best. Friends. Foreeeeeever. Or until my skinny jeans start getting tight. Then we might need to put a little distance between each other. But don’t worry, cookies. I’ll see you around soon.
When Katie (of Katie’s Cucina) asked me to help her out with a guest post, I immediately said yes. You see, Katie’s busy. She just had a baby!!! The last thing she needs to be doing right now is blogging so I am so thrilled to be able to help her out. She needs to spend ALL her time snuggling her new little cutie. And little Ryder is so, so, SO cute! Head on over to Katie’s site to meet Ryder — he has the sweetest little face!
Kind of makes me want to have another one.
Oh wait. Puking for 9 months straight? Never mind, I’m good.
Maybe Katie will let me snuggle with Ryder so I can get my baby fix. In the meantime, I made cookies. Back the cookies, yes. These cookies quickly shot to the top of my list of favorites.
First of all, they are super thick and soft — one of my favorite cookie attributes. Secondly, dark chocolate. Thirdly, crunchy, flavorful pecan. And what I think makes these cookies really special is the touch of cinnamon. It complements the chocolate and pecans just perfectly and makes these cookies slightly more interesting and sophisticated than a plain ol’ chocolate chip cookie.
