I’m so excited to share with you these oatmeal pecan cookies! Not only are these my absolute FAVORITE oatmeal cookies ever, but they have been tested and tested and tested so I am way excited for you all to try them! They’ve been made so often mostly because the toddler and I love making cookies (way too often), but also because I sent them to a few of my friends, so a lot of batches had to be made 🙂 I participated in a mailing cookie exchange with this recipe and it was so fun. How it works? Pick a few friends, perfect a cookie recipe, and mail a dozen (or however many you want) cookies to everyone. In exchange you’ll get their favorite cookies in the mail back! It’s a fun thing to do around the holidays if you’re away from family/friends!
My favorite cookie (ever) is an oatmeal chocolate-chip cookie (does that make me boring?!). So, I wanted these to be the very best. The “very best” (in my mind) is a soft & chewy oatmeal cookie that has crisp edges/bottom and an ultra soft, slightly under-baked center. These cookies fit that bill. They’ve got those crispy & crunchy sugary edges, a soft slightly underbaked center, plenty of melted chocolate throughout, and overall plenty of chewiness.
