Small Batch Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies {Recipe}

So I gushed about how much I love Gretchen from Lifenut yesterday, now I’ll share with you my other lady-love – Catherine Moss from Evolving Mommy.  Witty, wonderful, sweet, and all around a beautiful person.  I have the pleasure of knowing these two IRL and am a better person for it.  {stops blubbering NOW}

Small batches, what do you think?  Craving, midnight snack? Want a few and don’t feel like sharing, so you’ll need to eat all the evidence of baking?  Want the dough and give away the baked portions?  Yes, you can.  Catherine is sharing with us her small batch recipe for Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies.  Is your mouth watering?  Yes? Mine too.

Small Batch Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies


Small Batch Peanut Butter Pecan Cookies

1 mounded tablespoon packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons table sugar
2 tablespoons unsalted butter at room temperature
2 1/2 teaspoons egg, beaten
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/4 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350.

In a medium sized bowl mix sugar, brown sugar, butter, egg, vanilla and peanut butter using a hand mixer until well blended. In a small bowl mix flour, baking soda, salt, and pecans. Add flour mixture to the sugar mixture and mix until well blended.

Roll mounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls and place on ungreased cookie sheets. Once all dough is balled and placed on cookie sheet use a flat bottomed glass to flatten the dough balls to about a 1/2 inch think. Edges of cookie will be rough. Using a fork press tines into flattened dough to make a slight crisscross design on each cookie.

Bake for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove pan from oven and move cookies to wire rack to cool.
