These super simple Pecan Cookies are bursting with flavor. They are full of chocolate chips, chopped pecans, and cinnamon. With only 8 ingredients, a bowl, and a wooden spoon they mix up in 5 minutes.
I love super simple recipes that highlight a few delicious ingredients. And these cookies fit the list. You can taste the pecans, a hint of cinnamon, and the richness of the chocolate.
You’ll probably be seeing a few more pecan recipes coming up this fall! There two reasons for that.
The first is my sweet five year old had an allergic reaction to pistachios in the beginning of the summer. Her lips swelled up like balloons and we went to the ER to make sure the reaction didn’t continue. After that our family doctor did some allergy testing. She is very allergic to pistachios and cashews. She’s eaten peanuts and almonds with no reaction but we decided to just eliminate all tree nuts and peanuts from her diet to be safe. The nut lowest on the list of potential allergens was pecans.
The second reason is that pecans are actually my favorite nut. I’m grateful she was fine (and we now have a epipen just in case) and I’m grateful I can still use some nuts. No more cashews or pistachios in the house but the rest are fine to have around and use in my recipes.
