After a long day at the park, the kids were hoping to help me make cookies for their afternoon snack. After looking through the baking cupboard, they chose white chocolate, craisins, and pecans to use in their cookies. They were simple and fun to make and tasted FANTASTIC. These cookies were rich, decadent, and so delicious.
White Chocolate, Pecan, and Craisin Cookies:
- 1 cup of flour
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup butter, melted
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup pecan pieces
- 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup of craisins
How to Make White Chocolate, Pecan, and Craisin Cookies
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl then set aside. Beat together the melted butter, brown sugar, white sugar, egg, egg yolk, and vanilla with a mixer until creamy.
Gradually add the flour mixture to the sugar mixture until just mixed. Stir in the craisins, pecans, and white chocolate chips by hand. Drop by the spoonful onto a greased or lined baking sheet.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until the edges look golden brown. Cool on the baking sheet for at least 4-5 minutes (so cookies can set) before moving to a rack. Enjoy.
