Another fabulous recipe courtesy of my time in Montana. I can’t think of a better way to warm up the house. Can you?
White Chocolate Pecan Cookies
1 cup sugar
1 4 oz. pkg. white chocolate instant pudding powder
1 cup butter, soft
1 tsp. vanilla paste
2 large eggs
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/2 -3 cups flour
1 cup white chocolate chips
2 cups pecan halves
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixer, cream together the sugar, pudding powder, butter, vanilla & eggs. Once light and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes, add the flour, baking powder and soda, salt & white chocolate and pecans.
Mix until just combined.
Place a 1/3 cup scoop onto a baking sheet, About 8 cookies per sheet, being careful not to over crowd the cookies.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, until set, but soft and slightly golden. Remove from the oven and cool completely. These cookies are so good, and can freeze as well.
