Chocolate Pecan Cookies

What can I say, baking cookies never gets old for me. Yes, I’m at it again, yet another cookie recipe. People ask me all the time, “Sheryl, don’t you ever get tired of doing this?” No, no I don’t. While others are out in the world doing productive things with their lives, I prefer to remain at home in the privacy of my own kitchen measuring out flour and butter, rolling dough into cute little balls and watching them sprout into delectable little cookies.

I know, girl get a life. I do like to stand in front of the oven with the light on watching my dough balls morph into crispy, crunchy edible treats. It’s a harmless obsession really. These Chocolate Pecan Cookies are a particular favorite of mine as I like nothing more in life than chocolate and nuts, best combo ever since Kim and Kanye, am I right? As if these cookies are not already perfect enough, the chocolate drizzle on top is the icing on the cake, or the cookie…you know what I mean.

Mama’s Tips: 

One of my most useful kitchen accouterments is a cookie cutter set like this.  For this particular recipe, I used the 3-inch cutter. I placed the cutter on the parchment covered cookie sheet, and then took my dough ball and pressed it into the cutter to achieve a uniform size for all my cookies. You always want your cookies to be the same size and thickness so that they will bake evenly for yummy results.

Recipe: Easy

  1. I was just having a cup of tea when this popped up. Unfortunately I was snacking on a somewhat tasty but overly refined and packaged fiber bar instead of these delectable treats. As Samuel Johnson once said, “If you are tired of cookies, you are tired of life.” At least that’s what I think he meant.

  2. do these look good or what????? I think this is a better combo than Kim and Kanye, so you are still the best matchmaker…

  3. Mama your cookies are perfection and I especially agree that chocolate & nuts, are the perfect combination, (celebrities included!) everything is so beautiful on this page, I just want to snaffle them all!

  4. These are such stunning photos of beautiful, decadent, dark ‘n chocolatey cookies. I don’t have a life either – there’s nothing I’d rather be doing than staying in my kitchen, making something with my hands, letting my apartment fill with the sweet aromas of baking, and then enjoying what I’ve made with a cup of tea. Heaven!

  5. Lookie where Pinterest brought me today! These cookies look amazing!!
