I had every intention to make a non-chocolate cookie.
I had my butter, pecans, sugar, and flour. There was not a chocolate chip, chocolate bar, or box of cocoa powder within 8 feet of me and my mixer. I had a goal, no chocolate! Just some butter and pecans.
The cookies went into the oven and there was still no chocolate in these cookies! And oh my, can we talk about the smell coming from the oven? It smelled like we had been baking Christmas cookies all day. Buttery Christmas cookies with hints a vanilla and toasted pecans wafting through the entire kitchen and into the family room. The smell alone is reason enough to make these cookies!
Out of the oven and straight into our mouths…….oh my gosh like hold the phone!
They are amazing. Buttery and flakey, but soft and crunchy too. And with out chocolate………
But then this happened. Yeah, the chocolate drizzle that puts these cookies over the top!
These cookies are the perfect holiday treat with or without chocolate. I of course I recommend giving the chocolate a try!
Supper easy to make just make the dough, roll into a log, refrigerate, slice, bake, and drizzle! These are perfect on the Thanksgiving dessert table or at any of your holiday parties! And trust me everyone loves BUTTER.
Whether you use chocolate or not just make these cookies!
P.S. Yes, those are Christmas plates. I am sorry I just cant help myself, plus I do not have any turkey plates or ribbon! You can hate me now.
