Tasty Tuesday – Oatmeal Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

I made these cookies from joy the baker the other week. To me the taste seemed classic with a twist! I love the texture of old-fashioned oats in chocolate chip cookies, but add a bit of spice and pecans and you’ve got a little something extra! In my opinion there was a little bit too much spice – – but the people in my community group strongly disagreed! So I will put the original recipe and my change too:)

Oatmeal Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

adapted from Southern Living, seen on Joy the Baker

 makes 2 1/2 dozen cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups uncooked oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (I do 1/2 t.)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Beat the sugar and butter in the bowl of a stand mixer fit with a paddle attachment.  Beat until creamy, about 3 to 4 minutes.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.  Add the vanilla extract and beat until blended.

Whisk together the oats, flour, baking powder, baking soda, spices and salt.  Add to the butter and egg mixture slowly beating on low speed until just incorporated.  Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans last.

Bake at 350 degrees F for 9 to 12 minutes or until they’ve reached your desired doneness.  I like mine a little underdone and cook them for 9-10 minutes.  Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

What’s your favorite classic cookie with a twist??

if you don’t have one… make one up!!!
