I would bet if a pole were taken (and I’m sure somewhere it has been done) you would find Chocolate Chip Cookies the #1 favorite cookie of the world. In second place would be Peanut Butter, and coming in a close third would be Oatmeal Cookies. However, always the rebels, we here at the Secret Recipe Club are awarding Everything Pecan Oatmeal Cookies the Blue Ribbon, hands down. Andrea received Maria’s blog, Close to Home, for her SRC assignment this month. And aren’t we all glad she did. Andrea said . . .
“I was immediately drawn to the Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookie post on Maria’s blog. Not only was it from one of my favorite Food Network Star’s cookbooks (Ina Garten, The Barefoot Contessa) but it made my pregnant taste buds water. Cookies really haven’t been doing that for me lately.”
There were a few additions made to Maria’s recipe by Andrea, thus the name “Everything”. Chocolate chips and toasted something crispy, just to tease you a bit.
Check out the recipe for Everything Pecan Oatmeal Cookies.
