Pecan Chews

Today, I am sharing another recipe from the Hannah Swenson series by Joanne Fluke. A few weeks ago, I shared Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies. These cookies were also found in the first book, Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder. I brought them to our April Family Readiness Group potluck - and they were gone fast! I think they almost taste a bit like rum cake.

What you need:
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 3 cups brown sugar
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 3 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 4 cups flour
Beat butter and brown sugar, then cool.
Add eggs and beat until combined.

Then add salt, baking soda, vanilla, and pecans.

Lastly add flour and combine until it comes together.

Using a cookie scoop, add 12 balls of dough to a cookie sheet.

Cook for 10 to 12 minutes in a preheated 350* oven.
Rest for 1 minute on the cookie sheets and remove to a wire rack.
