You know those recipes you find on Pinterest? You pin them and stare at the gorgeous pictures that make you drool but you never actually make the recipe. Instead you pin more recipes and these just keep getting buried under a heap of more newly pinned recipes.
Or is that just my Pinterest recipe hoarding experience?
Chocolate chips and Pecans Cookie Sticks (from Buttercream and Chantilly Factory)
1/2 cup grape seed oil (or any other neutral oil)
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
3/4 cup pecans
Spread the pecans in a single layer on parchment paper on a baking sheet.
Bake them at 325°F for 10 minutes, until they are light brown and fragrant. Check the nuts frequently and stir them to ensure even toasting. Cool them prior to chop them. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the oil, sugar, egg and vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to sugar mixture and mix well. Add the toasted chopped pecans and chocolate chips.
Divide dough in half.
On a parchment paper on a baking sheet, shape each portion into a 9-in. x 2-in. rectangle (and about 1 inch in thickness) about 3 in. apart.
Refrigerate for about an hour.
Bake at 350°F for 20 minutes. (Bake slightly more or less depending on how you like your cookies)
Did you notice how I couldn’t even take photos of these cookie bars without taking a bite? This is a sickness….
