"This is a great tea time cookie. A pecan cookie with a hint of orange and chocolate. Great for Christmas trays too." — HAPPYBAKER1

1 3/4 cups
finely chopped pecans
grated orange zest, divided
freshly squeezed orange juice
semi-sweet chocolate chips
Came out great, I followed recipe exactly except for the butter (I used "can't believe it's not butter" instead). It was getting picked off the tray before I could even put the chocolate on it!
I was't crazy about these... Too much work for an OK result.
These cookies are AMAZING!!! Seriously. If you are looking for the ultimate Christmas cookie these are SO perfect. This recipe has become a Xmas cookie favorite in our home; I just made it for the third time. The flavors of orange and chocolate and 'nuttiness' are comforting and classy.
Some things I've adjusted:
-I sometimes roll them into 'fingers' and then dip them, kinda fun for presentation.
- I always have issues with using the chocolate chips and reccomend quliaty semi-sweet or dark baking chocolate instead.
- Toast the pecans first for a richer flavour
- Squish the dough balls down, they're better if they're a wee bit thinner
- A add a bit of orange zest right into the melted chocolate, and a splash of orange liquor into the dough
Thanks for a fantastic recipe!
We had Christmas cookies party. We baked orange pecan cookies. We tried to eat. It was sooooooo good. We dip melted chocolate and dipped orange zest. It was so awesome and taste great. You guys should try to make that cookies. We want do it again for another party. Thanks.
Yum Yum Yum. I used Grand Marnier instead of the orange juice, but they still came out amazing.
Mine didn't spread at all, so you might need to "flatten" them a bit if you don't want a ball-shaped cookie.
Whatever the shape, though, these cookies are awesome!
I find these cookies to be a big hit with grown ups, not so much with the kids. They are great with coffee or tea, not overly sweet, and look nice on a christmas cookie tray. I like them for breakfast, but don't tell!
I always like to try new cookie recipes for Christmas. This one was excellent. Orange chocolate is a favorite in my hometown of Buffalo, NY, so I knew I would love these. The flavors blend so well and the pecans add another dimension. I will make these again and have been asked by a co-worker for the recipe.
Very good! Followed the recipe exactly except for the orange zest, so they could even have a stronger orange flavor than mine did, which I think would only be better. The contrast of the pecan crumble cookie and the chocolate coating (I only coated half the cookie) turned out very well!
