Cinnamon Pecan Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1/2 c. salted butter, browned
  • 1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 c. dark maple syrup
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract

  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 c. bread flour
  • 3/4 c. pecans, chopped

Yields Approximately 2 Dozen Cookies

In a sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter. Continue cooking the butter, stirring frequently. The butter will start to foam and smell nutty. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Beat the butter, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Scrape the bowl, then add the eggs and mix to combine. Add the vanilla.

In a bowl, sift together the salt, baking powder, cinnamon, and flour. Add the flour mixture to the wet ingredients in two additions, scraping the bowl after each addition. Add the pecans and mix until just combined.

Place dough onto parchment paper-lined baking sheets using tablespoon -sized scoops of dough. Bake for 8-10 minutes until the bottoms are lightly browned.

Peach Crisp +Pecans+Almonds

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a bowl, toss the peaches with the lemon juice, dark brown sugar, marzipan, vanilla extract, almond extract, and cornstarch. The marizpan will start to dissolve over time. Give it the occasional stir to fully incorporate the marzipan. Set aside for at least 20 minutes.

In a bowl stir together the flour, rolled oats, kosher salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, dark brown sugar, pecans, and almonds. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or your hands, mixing until everything is well combined. Break the bits of mixture into smaller pieces for topping.

Pour the peach filling into a greased 9×13 baking dish. Spread the crisp topping over the peaches. Bake for 35-40 minutes, until the filling is bubbly and the crisp topping is browned
