I have discovered a most decadent cookie. Luxuriously, self-indulgent truly describes it. I am happy to say that the discovery of adding pecans to this recipe was purely by accident. This original german recipe called for pine nuts and I have made it true to that before and it is good. Pine nuts have just been a bit too expensive lately but I really like that cookie. I looked at the nuts I had on hand and decided to substitute the pecans instead. I am so glad the pine nuts were too pricey!
Too make a long story short…. let’s get baking!
Here are the ingredients needed to make this recipe.
First chop the chocolate into small chunks and set aside.
Next, break or chop up your pecans into smaller pieces.
Brown slightly in a pan. Keep stirring them over medium heat because they will burn easily. Then also set aside.
In a bowl combine your butter and sugar and mix until creamy.
Then beat in the egg.
Now, combine the flour, salt and baking soda.
It will become quite a thick consistency.
Stir in with a spoon the pecans and chocolate.
It should look like this.
Roll into balls about the size of a teaspoon and a half. The dough is quite sticky.
Bake in a 300 degree (150 Celsius) pre-heated oven for about 12 to 15 minutes, until the edges are slightly golden.
Then cool on parchment paper.
Now the fun part, enjoy!
