Chocolate Chip-Pecan Cookies

Snow has arrived!

Yesterday, weΒ 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 cookiesΒ 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

2 eggs

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.

Enjoy!
