Spiced Pecan Cookies

I am all for loading a cookie with pecans, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice. Perfect cookie on a fall day, plus your kitchen will smell wonderful. Bake some and have a nibble!

Spiced Pecan Cookies

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 Tbl vanilla
2 Tbl cream or half-and-half
2 cups flour
1 Tbl pumpkin pie spice
2 tsp corn starch
1 tsp baking soda
pinch salt
2 cups pecan halves

Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar with electric mixer. Add egg, vanilla, and cream; mix well. Add flour, pumpkin pie spice, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Mix just until combined. Mix in pecans, the mixer will break them up a bit but leave large chunks (you can chop them if you want smaller pieces).

Original recipe at averiecooks.com says to scoop into balls and refrigerate at this point, click on link if you want to go that route. I am a rebel, not really, just wanted a cookie faster, and baked them immediately. Scoop onto silpat lined or sprayed baking sheet. I baked them at 375° for 8-9 minutes, don’t let them brown if you want a soft cookie. I smashed mine with the spatula as they came from the oven. Let cool.

  1. Looks yummy! Never thought of trying pumpkin spice for baking cookies. Will probably try it out as I get into my baking frenzy this time of year with the smell of cinnamon and spices during Fall taking over the kitchen.
