Cinnamon Pecan Cookies Recipe

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 C Shortening
  • 1/4 C Salted Butter – softened
  • 1 C Brown Sugar – Packed
  • 1/4 C Light Corn Syrup
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 TBS Vanilla Extract
  • 2 C All Purpose Flour
  • 3 TSP Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 TSP Baking Soda
  • 1/2 TSP Kosher Salt
  • 1 1/2 C Chopped Pecans – Toasted

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 Degrees F
  2. In a medium and separate bowl mix your dry ingredients together: flour, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt.  This mixture will be added to main bowl later.
  3. In your stand mixer, mix shortening and butter, add brown sugar and mix on medium speed until you get a creamy smooth texture.
  4. Add egg.  Mix.  Add corn syrup and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly.
  5. Add your dry ingredients bowl to this main mixing bowl.  I like to add this 1/3 at a time so flour doesn’t fly everywhere. Mix until a soft dough forms then stop.
  6. Add your pecans and stir together until pecans are evenly distributed throughout the dough.
  7. Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on a baking sheet.  I always line my baking sheet with parchment paper.  Bake for 10 – 12 minutes.
  8. This recipe yielded 30 cookies for me 🙂
