Just wanted you to know that these sweet, brown sugar chewy butter pecan cookies are sponsored by my friends over at Amoretti!
These gluten free Butter Pecan Cookies are perfectly crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside! A paleo and vegan friendly dairy-free treat for the holidays!
PIN Brown Sugar Chewy Butter Pecan Cookies
That is what these crisp, melt-in-your mouth little cookies with pecans are.
They’re festive little gems loaded with RICH, buttery ghee, sweet coconut sugar and MOLASSES for the CHEW that I am HIGHLY, HIGHLY addicted to during the Christmas-cookie-eating-season that we are currently in.
Internet friends. Everything in me <3 <3 <3’s everything about each and every nutty, chewy bite of this butter pecan cookie recipe. It reminds me of something that your Grandma would make, which means you can basically TASTE THE LOVE in EVERY BITE.
Cookies nestled with love in every delicious nook and cranny >>>> non-love cookies.
The outside of these brown sugar chewy butter pecan cookies bakes to the ULTIMATE golden brown, crispy goodness, while the inside is laced with flavorful notes of DEEP, rich molasses that keep it chewy and PERFECT.
Did you know that brown sugar helps baked good stay chewy because it has molasses in it? NOW YOU DO. <—That’s why the brown butter oatmeal cookies are SO chewy too!!
Which is why I cheated the system and used an EXTRA molasses punch to create the NIRVANA of cookie texture BLISS.
There IS always a method to my madness. I pinky swear.
How-EV-er, molasses is NOT the only super-secret-except-not-so-secret-anymore ingredient in this pecan cookies recipe.
Amoretti’s Natural PECAN FLOUR is a real thing that exists on this Earth and it is just made ENTIRELY of nourishing, wholesome, healthy-fat loaded PECANS.
And you thought that you could only flour-i-fy coconut and almonds. <— Real life confession: I used to think this too, until Amoretti BROADENED MY HORIZONS, so you are not alone in this thinking.[clickToTweet tweet=”Melt in your mouth, chewy #Paleo #Vegan Butter Pecan Cookies are perfect for #Christmas! @Amoretti” quote=”Melt in your mouth, chewy #Paleo #Vegan Butter Pecan Cookies are perfect for #Christmas! @Amoretti” theme=”style2″]
This delicious, nutty flour made some ADDICTING pecan pie paleo cookies last year, and it’s giving a 1-2 PECAN PUNCH of goodness in these paleo pecan cookies THIS YEAR.
Because why have one times the nuts when you could have TWO? Go big or GO HOME.
Although, home is probably where the cookies are, so maybe you want to go there….?
Never mind. That is beside the point.
The point is that these BUTTERY shortbread-like gluten free pecan cookies are loaded with all the nutty flavor that your mouth craves at the promise of such a flavor combo.
First the ghee glides over your tongue in buttery-bliss, which is one up-ed by the golden brown, toasty-pecan flour cookie shell and – the big finale – a CRISPY-CRUNCH of ROASTY, TOASTY real pecans.
Texture: chewy, melt in your mouth, CRISPY.
Flavor: BUTTERY. RICH. TOASTY. GRANDMA LOVE.
And not the kind of Grandma love that usually ends in you receiving some heinous sweater when it’s TOO LATE to rock it at an ugly Christmas sweater party.
Don’t lie. The sweater she made you last year is totally going to make its debut at a party this year. I KNOW YOU.
Anyway. These vegan pecan cookies are basically a mish-mash of deliciousness that is like going on a taste bud vacation to the land of cookie MAGIC.
I don’t know where that it is, but I think we can all agree that we WANT TO GO THERE.
