Yum! Such delicious cookies! I loved the combination of pecans, oatmeal and ginger, and the whole wheat flour adds a nuttiness to the flavour profile as well. This recipe is definately in my keeper file! Thanks, Annacia! Made for Zaar Stars Tag.
This is a very nice cookie - I did bastardize the recipe a bit. Try this if you dare. I made this to recipe, except: Doubled (I may triple or quad next time) the amount of ginger. (still not ginger-snapish). Add 1/2 C. crystallized Ginger chopped. 1/2 semi-sweet Choc Chips 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper (yes pepper) Used toasted slivered almonds instead of pecans. I cooked immediately after mixing - no chilling - just roll into walnut sized balls and press down dough with the back of a spatula. Cook 10-11 minutes for chew - 12-14 for crispier.
Yummy oatmeal cookies - loved the gingery flavour! I will be making these often as the kids had them finished off in 2 days (oh, and the neighbour's kids loved them, too).
Mmmm, loved these cookies! I was too impatient to do the whole set in fridge for 2 hours thing so I just rolled in walnut sized balls and flattened with the palm of my hand. If you like a crispy cookie you'll love these (great for dunking in a cup of tea :) )If slightly under baked you'll end up with a chewy centre (the way my kids like em)Thanks for sharing...it's a keeper!
If you like thin crispy, nutty, gingery cookies...these are for you! I think they're outstanding! I usually don't make cookies I have to refrigerate in logs and cut but this wasn't so hard to push into a saran wrapped loaf pan. They don't turn out with perfect shapes but good enough...rectangular. I will be making these again, thanks for the keeper recipe Annacia! Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.
This is a new favorite of mine. Not real big fan of gingerbread, but this recipe is delish. Thanks for sharing. ~V
