Butter Pecan Flavor
Butter pecan is one of my favorite ice cream flavors.
There is something about the creamy goodness mixed in with that butter and nutty pecan flavor that makes me buy this flavor all of the time. Add caramel sauce, and it is heaven.
What better way to enjoy butter pecan than in these delicious gluten free pecan cookies?
I have learned my kids will devour any cookies with melted caramel bits…I may need to find a way to hide more veggies in my cookies. Caramel camouflage may just be the sneaky way to achieve this (insert evil grin.)
These cookies took a little time to create. Lots of trial and error to get the flavors just right. I used Kraft caramel bits to get the caramel flavor into the cookies. (*Note to be careful when you take these out of the oven. The melted caramel is HOT!)
Do you have a favorite flavor of ice cream that would be fun to create a cookie around?
How to make gluten free butter pecan cookies:
Add the pecans to the dry ingredients. Mix well so the pecans are evenly dispersed.
This is a one bowl cookie so I just added the wet ingredients in on top of the dry ingredients.
The dough is a little more firm then other cookies I have made.
Use a cookie scoop to drop the dough balls onto a cookie sheet.
