rockin and roastin coffee, recipe

National Pecan Cookie Day is upon us, and what better way to celebrate than with a delightful recipe for Pecan Crunch Cookies that pair perfectly with Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee?

These cookies may only have seven simple ingredients, but their flavor profile is anything but ordinary. We're diving into the magic of these southern-style cookies, where vanilla, butter, and toasted pecans come together to create layers of taste. And if you're looking to take your baking game up a notch, we've got a secret ingredient that will have you hooked – brown butter.

We found this recipe through To Simply Inspire 


The Ingredients You'll Need:

  1. Butter, Divided: You'll need 12 tablespoons of butter in total. While 8 tablespoons are used for browning, the remaining 4 tablespoons should be melted and added to the mixing bowl.

  2. Brown Sugar: This sweetens the cookies and imparts a caramel flavor that complements the pecans and butter beautifully.

  3. Large Egg: It acts as the binding agent, holding all the ingredients together.

  4. Vanilla Extract: A signature ingredient in butter pecan cookies, it enhances the overall flavor.

  5. All-Purpose Flour: When measured accurately, the flour provides structure and the perfect texture—neither too heavy nor too dense.

  6. Baking Soda: This leavening agent ensures your cookies rise beautifully.

  7. Chopped Pecans: Toast them if you like to intensify their nutty taste.

The Instructions:

  1. Brown the Butter: Begin by placing 8 tablespoons (1 stick) of butter in a small pan and melting it over medium heat. Continue cooking for approximately 5 minutes until it turns a beautiful light brown, stirring occasionally. Once browned, add it to a large mixing bowl, making sure to include any bits from the bottom of the pan.

  2. Combine with Melted Butter: In a separate pan or in the microwave for a few seconds, melt the remaining 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) of butter. Add this melted butter to the mixing bowl with the browned butter.

  3. Mix with Brown Sugar: Add the brown sugar to the butter and beat the mixture with an electric mixer or whisk until well combined.

  4. Add Egg and Vanilla: Incorporate the large egg and vanilla extract into the mixture and mix until they are fully combined.

  5. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate small bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and baking soda. Toss them together to ensure even distribution.

  6. Mix Wet and Dry Ingredients: Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients in the mixing bowl and gently mix until just barely combined. Avoid over-mixing, as this can make the cookies dense.

  7. Fold in Pecans: Gently stir the chopped pecans into the dough until they are evenly distributed throughout.

  8. Chill the Dough: Place the mixing bowl in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to chill while preheating your oven to 375°F.

  9. Scoop and Bake: After chilling, scoop out 1 ½ – 2 tablespoons of dough and place them on a parchment-lined baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches of space between each cookie. Slightly press down each ball so they are no thicker than ½".

  10. Bake to Perfection: Bake your cookies for 12-14 minutes in the preheated oven. They should turn a beautiful golden brown.

  11. Cool and Enjoy: Allow your freshly baked cookies to cool on the tray for 10 minutes. Then, grab your favorite Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee, brew a cup, and savor the delightful pairing of Pecan Crunch Cookies and the rich, aromatic coffee.

As you celebrate National Pecan Cookie Day, don't miss the chance to whip up a batch of these exquisite Pecan Crunch Cookies. The rich, nutty flavor of brown butter and toasted pecans combined with the sweetness of brown sugar makes these cookies a true southern gem. Pair them with Joey Kramer's Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee for a delightful experience that elevates your taste buds to new heights.

Happy baking and sipping!


Rockin' Apple Dumplings for National Apple Dumpling Day


HubSpot Video

Hey there, rock 'n' roll foodies! Today we've got something sweet and delicious in store to celebrate National Apple Dumpling Day. I've found this amazing recipe, and trust me, it's legendary !

Here's what you'll need to get started:


  • 6 medium baking apples (Honeycrisp or granny smith are perfect)
  • Pie dough for a 9-inch double-crust pie (whether you go for homemade or store-bought, it's all rock 'n' roll!)

For the filling:

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter (cut into 6 equal pieces)
  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon apple pie spice

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup unfiltered apple juice or apple cider
  • ¾ cup lightly packed light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter

Now, let's get cookin'!


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 375°F, and don't forget to grease a 13x9-inch baking dish. Rock 'n' roll, right? Set it aside for now.

  2. Peel and core each of those apples – we want them ready to party. To keep them from browning while we work on the dough, place those bad boys in a bowl of cold water with a squeeze of lemon juice.

  3. Whether you're going the homemade pie dough route or grabbing a store-bought one, it's all good. Roll the dough out into a large rectangle, about 21x14 inches. If you've got six equal pieces, each about 7x7 inches, you're right on track.

  4. Now, let's add some flavor to the mix. In a small bowl, mix together the granulated sugar and that awesome apple pie spice. It's like a guitar solo for your taste buds.

  5. Place one of those cored apples right in the center of each dough piece. Now, drop in one of those butter pieces and sprinkle a bit of that spiced sugar mixture right on top of the apple. Time to wrap it all up – bring the corners of the dough up over the apple and pinch those edges together to seal the deal. Repeat this for all your apples and dough pieces.

  6. It's time for the sauce! Put the sauce ingredients (apple juice or cider, light brown sugar, and unsalted butter) in a saucepan. Let it all come to a boil over medium heat, whisking it like you're drumming those beats. Once the sauce is rocking with a rolling boil and the sugar's all dissolved, take it off the heat and pour it evenly over your apples. Any remaining spiced sugar? Sprinkle it on top – we don't waste rock 'n' roll flavor!

  7. Now, pop those dumplings into the oven for 50-55 minutes, or until they're golden and a paring knife slides in as smooth as a guitar solo. Let 'em cool a bit, and when you're ready to serve, grab some of that sweet sauce to drizzle over them and pair with a delicious cup of your favorite Rockin' & Roastin' Coffee!
