Double Chocolate-Pecan Cookies

Introduction: Double Chocolate-Pecan Cookies

About: I have been sewing and crafting for several years, my children are grown so now I have lots of time to be creative. I enjoy photography, cooking, cake decorating, painting and sharing my projects with others.

Do you have a Chocoholic in your life? These cookies are so delicious and they just melt in your mouth. I have been making them for several years and have received many positive comments.

This recipe makes 5 dozen cookies.

Step 1: Supplies

To make these cookies you will need:

2 cups flour

1-1/2 cups oatmeal

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2 sticks butter (do not use margarine)

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 cup cocoa powder

1 package (12 oz) semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup water

2 eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1 cup powdered sugar

Step 2: Melt the Butter

In a saucepan, on low heat, melt 2 sticks butter. (Do not use margarine) Stir in 1/2 cup cocoa powder. Set aside to cool.

Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees.

Step 3: Flour Mixture

In a large mixing bowl blend 2 cups flour with 1-1/2 cups oatmeal. Add 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt. Stir well.

Step 4: Mix Eggs With Sugar

In a separate bowl, mix 2 eggs with 1 cup granulated sugar and 1/4 cup water. Blend well.

Step 5: Combine Ingredients

Pour the egg mixture into the flour mixture and using an electric mixer, mix on low speed for 2 minutes, SLOWLY adding the cooled chocolate/butter mixture. Add the vanilla and stir well.

Step 6: Add Chocolate Chips and Pecans

Stir the chocolate chips and pecans into the cookie dough using a large wooden spoon.

Step 7: Shape Cookie Dough

Roll a ball of dough about the size of a walnut, coat it in powdered sugar and place on cookie sheet., pressing down slightly so they don't roll around.

If you place the rolled up cookie dough on the cookie sheet as pictured, you will be able to bake 13 cookies per batch! This is known as a Bakers Dozen!

Step 8: Bake

Place the cookie sheet in the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and place cookies on a wire cooling rack. This recipe makes 5 dozen cookies. Place cooled cookies in a sealed container. Enjoy!

    We might have to taste-test these at Instructables HQ. All swaddled up in that basket, that main image makes these look like the unhealthiest picnic I still want to go to.
