Ultimate Pecan Chocolate Chunk Cookies
“Ultimate pecan chocolate chunk cookies have arrived. Move over regular cookies!
These cookies, you guys. THESE COOKIES. After being freshly toasted, half of the pecans are ground up into a flour, while half are chopped for the dough. It’s what makes them ultimatepecan chocolate chunk cookies. It’s two hits of pecans, and you’re going to be totally okay with pecans hitting you.”
I’ll admit, the first thing that grabbed my eye in this title was the word “pecan.” Pecans are one of my favorite foods thanks to their naturally buttery and indulgent flavor and the fact that they help you maintain healthy cholesterol levels. It’s true. And that makes me so happy!
Now I’m not normally a person who prefers nuts in her baked goods, but every once in awhile there’s a recipe where they are absolutely perfect, and this is one of those recipes. These cookies have the two hits of pecans mentioned above, plus toasted coconut and chocolate chunks. It almost has the makings of a German chocolate cake but in portion-controlled cookie size. Bake so up this weekend and enjoy with a cold glass of milk, and nix any guilty feelings you may have about eating dessert. After all, those pecans are good for your cholesterol!
