Brown sugar pecan cookies on Tatertots & Jello

2012 November 15

If you add these brown sugar pecan cookies to the roasted cinnamon almonds and chocolate brownie trifle, that makes three features this week.

It’s like Christmas came early this year. And I’m way okay with that.


Brown sugar pecan cookies

Today I’m guest posting on Tatertots & Jello and sharing my recipe for these delicious brown sugar pecan cookies.

It’s pretty much a dream come true.

You are going to LOVE these pecan cookies. Combine the light, nutty flavor of the cookie with the maple-y (I like making up words) taste of the brown sugar frosting and it’s a holiday party in your mouth.

If you’re looking for a tasty addition to your neighbor goody plates this year, these brown sugar pecan cookies are the answer. Oh, and you’ll want to make a double batch so you can indulge during late-night Christmas present wrapping while catching up on Downton Abbey.

I usually make a double batch of everything because indulging is awesome.

    I wish that you were coming to Disney today and I would beg you to please bring me some. In other news, you are neat. mwah! Oh, and …
    Dear Madison,
    I love your pretty face. You are also neat. You should write a book called, How to be neat in just 30 days.

    Much love!
    From your not neat friend, Carrian ;)

    What an amazing coincidence! I’ve been looking for a cookie for my cookie exchange, this year, and yesterday, finally settle on some kind of pecan cookie. This might just be the winner!

    Also, can these be frozen?

    Hmm…I haven’t tried that yet. I would think the cookie itself could be but I’m not sure about the frosting. You could always make a batch and freeze a few of them to test it out.

    Brown sugar pecan cookies seem so yummy. The brown sugar will make this holiday extra sweet. Is it okay to add the flavor of zesty orange on the cookies?

    I wouldn’t have thought of that but it sounds delicious. Give it a try!
