This week I am participating in a fun group celebrating fall and all the fun and tasty foods that come along with it! If you are like me, then you really love all the foods that celebrate this colorful season and you will love all the recipes coming over the next week from myself and some blogger friends! Millican Pecan Co. is one of our tasty sponsors this week, along with Door County Coffee! As you scroll down you will find an exciting giveaway featuring products from each of our sponsors! Don’t forget to enter, and GOOD LUCK!
Today I am sharing my Caramel Pecan Cookie Sticks! They are a fun shortbread cookie full of pecan pieces from Millican Pecan Co. and they are topped off with a bit of caramel drizzle! I think they look and taste like fall, and I know they will be a hit in your house!
1 cup Butter
3/4 cup Sugar
2 cups Flour
1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1-1 1/2cups Pecan Pieces
15 Caramel Squares In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter on medium speed, for 30 seconds. Add the sugar. Mix on medium speed until incorporated. In a separate bowl, stir the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the flour mix to the butter mix. Mix together to form your dough.
Take the pecan pieces and distribute them into the molds of the pan.
Although this pan has a design on it, it will make no difference in the outcome of these cookies because the pecans are on the bottom. Take approx. 1 tablespoon of dough and push it into the mold of the pan. You might need a little bit more. Cover the pecans like above.
Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes.
As they brown and cook, watch them closely as it doesn’t take very long. Remove from oven to cool. Once cool, take them out with any object that won’t scratch your pan. I used a plastic fork. It was gentle on the cookie edge, and didn’t scratch. Let the cookies cool.
After the cookies are cooled, melt the caramel. Place the cookies on wax paper. Drizzle the caramel over the cookies.
This is a really easy recipe that highlights the deliciousness of the pecans and adds a bit of sweetness from the caramel. Plus, I think it looks and tastes like fall!
