Oh, the boys will be happy today.  They are getting cookies!  It's been awhile since I have sent in any cookies with Mr. Dick. Crispy on the edge and chewy goodness on the inside.  Pecans, brown sugar and toffee bits.   This recipe is from the McCormick, the spice company. They got 6 dozen cookies, I got 4.  My cookies are bigger!   Thank you for a great cookie.   

2 cups flour
1 teaspoon  baking soda
1 teaspoon McCormick Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter or 2 sticks, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract
2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
1 package (8 ounce) toffee bits
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.   In a good size bowl add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and whisk this all together.   In your large mixing bowl add the softened butter with the light brown sugar and the white sugar.  Mix.  Add the eggs one at a time and mix after each egg.  Add the vanilla and mix.  Add the flour mixture carefully and a low speed and mix.  Then add the oatmeal, toffee bits and the chopped pecans.  This mixture is very thick.    Bake at 350 degrees.   I used my cookie scoop and place the scoops on the parchment lined baking sheet and baked the cookies for 10-12 minutes.  Just watch them because the time will depend on the size of the scoop of dough.   Cool on rack for a bit then carefully move to the cooling rack.     McCormick say you get 6 dozen cookies I got 4 dozen large cookies.

  1. Oh these are making my mouth water. Your blog is dangerous to my waist. My boys are both allergic to pecans, so I would be eating most of these by myself...every last little devious, delicious crumb! Then my scales would be screaming at me.

    But I might have to suffer for the greater good ya know?


  2. I'm behind with my blog reading, but so glad I saw this recipe! These look yummy good, I would have had to keep a few at home for myself I think! Bet the guys loved them!

  3. I love pralines and cream ice cream, so I know I'll love it in cookie form!

  4. Your cookies sound so tasty! =)
    Crispy and chewy in the same cookie..yum! =)
