Posting here on 'Zaar to share with the community and for safekeeping. Found this recipe on the back of a bag of Great Value brand (Wal-Mart) light brown sugar. I have not tried these yet, but they sound wonderful. Please let me know how they turn out for you.
- 1 1⁄4 cups light brown sugar, firmly packed
- 1⁄4 cup water
- 3 teaspoons honey
- 1 egg
- 2 1⁄3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup coarsely ground pecans
- 2 1⁄2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon ground allspice
- Preheat oven to 375°F In a large mixing bowl, combine sugar, water, honey, and egg. Beat with mixer on high speed until well combined.
- In a separate bowl, combine flour, pecans, cinnamon, baking soda and allspice, mix well. Add to sugar mixture and mix well.
- Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake about 12 minutes, until cookies are lightly browned on edges. Remove from oven at once.
- Cookies are best if left to set a few hours before eating.
- Makes about 3 dozen. Store in airtight container.
The pecans really make this a good cookie. Keep in mind the egg is a binder, so the cookies will not flatten as they bake. We did the second batch by pressing them down first. The flavor/texture did not change, so either way works fine. This cookie is moist inside, and crunchy outside. Overall, we liked this cookie recipe.
