Snow has arrived!
Yesterday, we spent a cozy day inside while watching the softly-falling snow through the windows. By morning, the snow storm had subsided, and the girls couldn’t wait to get outside for a day of sledding!
For me, snow days are cozy. I want to cuddle in a blanket, sip hot chocolate with my family, and we can’t forget something yummy to bake, now can we?
While listening to Christmas tunes play merrily, I was inspired to bake up some cookies that I hope you will enjoy!
Chocolate Chip-Pecan Cookies
*I prefer to use organic ingredients
Preheat oven to 325 degrees
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup raw cane sugar
1/2 cup coconut sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 tablespoon raw honey
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup finely chopped pecans
-With a stand mixer or hand mixer, blend butter and coconut oil.
-Add sugars, eggs, vanilla and honey — mix until light and fluffy.
-Gently incorporate flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
-Stir in chocolate chips and pecans by hand until well incorporated.
Scoop by rounded tablespoon (a cookie scoop works wonderfully!) onto a baking sheet or baking stone, and bake for 10-12 minutes. Edges should begin to turn a soft brown.
-Cool on cookie rack for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a plate.
