Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

These cookies are heavenly goodness. Get the following ingredients together to make these good cookies:

  • 2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1 Cup (2 Sticks) Unsalted Butter, At Room Temperature
  • 1 Cup Packed Light-Brown Sugar
  • 1 Cup Granulated Sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, baking powder, and baking soda. Set dry ingredients aside. In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine butter with both sugars; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, milk, and eggs. Mix well. Add reserved dry ingredients, and beat until just combined. Remove bowl from mixer, and fold in oats, chocolate, and pecans. Place dough in the refrigerator until firm, at least two hours or overnight. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper, and set aside. Remove dough from refrigerator. Using an ice-cream scoop, shape into 2-inch-diameter balls. Place six balls on each baking sheet, spaced four inches apart, and press down. Transfer to oven. Bake until golden, but still soft in center, 15 to 16 minutes. Remove from oven, and place on a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough. Store in an airtight container up to two days. Makes 22 five-inch cookies.
