I am pretty traditional when it comes to seasonal guidelines so that means I don’t wear white shoes after Labor Day (actually haven’t owned white shoes in years – so that one is super easy) and I don’t eat oatmeal cookies in the summer. Ok so maybe I made up the no oatmeal cookies in the summer one, but it just seems wrong to eat a cookie that gives you such a warm and cozy feeling when it’s 90 degrees outside. Oatmeal cookies have always been a comfort food for me and trading out the traditional raisins for pecans just makes them all that more special. So since it’s officially September now, I thought it was close enough to fall to share these Oatmeal Pecan Cookies with you. I think you are going to love them.
These Oatmeal Pecan Cookies would make a great after-school snack, a breakfast treat (after all they are oatmeal cookies), and would be well-received as a simple gift for a neighbor, co-worker, teacher or bus driver.
Please let me know if you make these, and especially if you add your own personal touch. Maybe you will add the raisins back in, or add chocolate chips, or maybe even butterscotch chips.
I would love to see your version of these Oatmeal Pecan Cookies
Stay humble, work hard, be kind.
