directions

  • Grind the oatmeal and pecan pieces in a food processor until they resemble cornmeal--reasonably fine but with some texture. Whisk the whole wheat flour, cornstarch, ginger, salt and baking soda together in a medium bowl. Whisk in the oat/nut mixture.
  • In another medium bowl, beat the butter with an electric mixer until smooth and light, about 1 minute. Gradually add the granulated and light brown sugar; continue beating until evenly combined, about 3 minutes more. Add the vanilla and the egg.
  • Mix in the dry ingredients to make a textured dough. Line a 1 1/2-quart loaf pan or 3 mini loaf pans with plastic wrap and pack dough into the bottom half of the pan. Press to level off the dough. Lay a piece of plastic wrap on top and refrigerate until completely firm, about 2 hours.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  • Remove dough from the pan and unwrap. Slice dough in half lengthwise if using a large pan. Slice each log crosswise into 1/4-inch thick cookies. Place the cookies about a 1-inch apart on the prepared pans. Bake until golden brown, 15 to 18 minutes. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool and crisp.

    What is the function of the corn starch in this recipe? It appears to make the final product a little more crisp but wouldn't a minute or two more cooking time accomplish the same thing?

    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.
