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.
