I made white chocolate chip pecan cookies from the Beanilla blog.  I left a few at home for my husband and when I got back from work he said “You have to make these again! Maybe for the party on Saturday?”

So I made them again.

This time I took some to my uncle who just moved back to town and he thought they were the best cookies ever!

All boxed up!

So what are you waiting for? Go make some!

White Chocolate Pecan Cookies

makes 4-5 dozen

(from Beanilla)

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (I used a vanilla extract from my work, Amoretti)
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans

Directions:

Beat butter at medium speed with an electric mixer or in a stand mixer until creamy; add sugars, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in vanilla.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; gradually add to butter mixture, beating until blended. Stir in white chocolate chunks and pecans (I had to switch to a wooden spoon for this part). Using a small ice cream scoop, drop dough onto cookie sheets lined with parchment.

Bake at 350° for 12 minutes. Cool on baking sheets; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

Can you believe I forgot to take pictures of the finished cookies? Two opportunities and 9 dozen cookies. No pictures. *sigh* Maybe when we make them for Christmas.
