What makes these cookies so special? Flavored with bourbon and vanilla, the buttery cookie dough is the perfect base for mix-ins, and these cookies have plenty of them: semisweet chocolate chips, bittersweet chocolate chips, and chopped pecans make for one glorious cookie.

Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Cookies

The Secret Ingredient

And let’s not forget our secret ingredient: Biscoff cookies, pulsed to fine crumbs! Biscoff cookie crumbs add incredible texture and spice flavor for the ultimate fall cookie.

Alternatively, use graham cracker crumbs (and toss in 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves and 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg to replicate the spices) or gingersnap cookie crumbs. Chill the dough at least 4 hours before baking, or let the dough rest overnight for the absolute best flavor.

Enjoy these freshly baked bourbon pecan chocolate cookies with a glass of milk or bourbon!

Description

Bourbon pecan chocolate cookies make a delicious twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie, and they’re utterly irresistible!


Ingredients

Cookies

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 oz Biscoff cookies, pulsed to fine crumbs*
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 12 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp bourbon
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup pecans, chopped

Topping

  • 3/4 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • flaky salt

Instructions

  1. Whisk together flour, Biscoff cookie crumbs, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl. Beat butter and sugars in a large mixer bowl at medium speed until creamy. Beat in egg, egg yolk, vanilla, and bourbon until combined. Reduce speed to low and gradually add flour mixture; beat just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and pecans. Cover dough and chill in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F (if cookie dough has chilled overnight, let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes before baking). Line two baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper. Form 1 1/2-inch balls of dough and place two inches apart on prepared baking sheets; flatten mounds slightly and top cookies with chocolate chips, pressing gently to adhere.
  3. Bake, rotating pans halfway through, for 11 to 12 minutes, until edges are set. Remove from oven and sprinkle with flaky salt. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Notes

Biscoff Cookies: You’ll need 1 cup of Biscoff cookie crumbs for this recipe. You can also use 1 cup graham cracker crumbs (8 graham cracker sheets, pulsed to fine crumbs) or 1 cup gingersnap cookie crumbs.

  1. I need to bring a dessert to a potluck party and I think these cookies will be a real hit. I think I better make a double batch because I think they will go quickly. Do you think it is OK to make them the day ahead?

  2. I love this idea! Biscoff cookies are one of my favorite…so put it in chocolate chip form and you know I’ll be happy!!

  3. Mmmm….there’s something about anything Biscoff in a recipe that reels me in. These cookies look spectacular!
