Summer Picnic: Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies



Is it worth heating up the kitchen on a hot summer afternoon to have homemade cookies for an evening picnic? I think so! Especially we’re making these Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies!

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, cream 2 sticks of softened butter with 3/4 cup brown sugar and 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Add 2 eggs and 1 teaspoon real vanilla extract and stir until well combined.

In a separate bowl, mix together 2 1/4 cups flour with 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp salt. Add the dry mixture to the butter/sugar/eggs/vanilla and beat until they are well combined. Fold in 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips, 1 cup oatmeal and 1/2 cup pecan pieces.

Drop in rounded spoonfuls on an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for 9 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from oven and loosen each cookie with a spatula. Let them cool, or eat them gooey and hot!

Makes 4 – 5 dozen.


Do you prefer your cookie dough raw? Or baked?

The Farmer loves to eat the cookie dough from the bowl before I have a chance to bake the cookies. I usually bake two dozen at a time, so we can serve them when they’re fresh from the oven. Sometimes the cookie dough disappears! Does anyone else have this problem?
