Brown Butter Pecan Cookies


Butter pecan, pralines and cream, rum and raisin; three of my grandpa’s favourite ice creams. As a kid I remember my grandpa having a deep freeze full of gallons and gallons of these ice cream flavours. Those types of ice cream never seemed as enticing as cotton candy, tiger tail, bubble gum, or gold medal ribbon… until now. I love simple flavours, one or two additions/flavours is enough for the most perfect recipe. These cookies make simple ingredients look like a fancy bowtie.
Due to popularity I have been baking these cookies to a point where I likely need a giant freezer to store all the dough, but thank goodness for hungry friends!

These cookies are a make ahead recipe, which is good in the future, not so good if you want cookies right this second. But trust me, this dough really needs to sit in the freezer for at least 24 hours before it is ready to be baked. Whenever I know I want to whip up a batch of these I do the hard work the night before, and bake em’ 30 minutes before guests start arriving. Warm cookies are obviously well-loved because they are 100% absolutely delicious.
I know these are cookies and the holiday’s are over, but with an extra walk, or run you can afford to eat one of these as a treat!

Thanks for dropping in and catch you soon πŸ™‚

  3. I have to say I’m with grandpa too… I love butter pecan ice cream. I can only imagine how delicious these cookies are, and I’m guessing that they are just as delicious as they look.
