  • Cookies:
  • 1 cup Diamond of California¬ģ Pecan Halves
  • 1 cup quick cooking oats
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • Glaze:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

The Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. Place the pecans in a food processor and pulse until roughly chopped. Add the oats and pulse until finely chopped and combined. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars until fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, mixing and scraping down the sides of the bowl between each addition, then add the vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the bowl, mix until combined.
  4. Shape dough into 1 tbsp sized balls. Place on prepared baking sheet and use your palm to gently flatten the dough.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  6. Make the glaze by combining all three ingredients in a wide, shallow bowl. Mix with a fork until combined. If glaze is too thick, add more water. If glaze is too thin, add more sugar.
  7. Place each cookie face down in the bowl to cover the top with glaze, then place back on the cooling rack to set before serving.
