TLCs (pecan oatmeal cookies)

TLCs (oatmeal pecan cookies) / TLCs (cookies de aveia e pecãs)

When it comes to buying new cookbooks I usually have a hard time choosing from my ever expanding wish list but upon returning from my trip to NY last year I knew for sure that Thomas Keller’s “Bouchon Bakery” would be included on my next purchase – after having some of the delicious baked goods served at the beautiful store at Rockefeller Center there was no doubt in my mind. :)

These delicious cookies were the first recipe I tried from the gorgeous cookbook and they are the oatmeal cookies of choice for people who don’t like dried fruits; I’m a sucker for dried fruits and loved these cookies anyway. :D

from the beautiful Bouchon Bakery

1 cup + 1 ½ tablespoons (155g) all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
pinch of ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon table salt
1 ½ cups (135g) rolled oats
212g unsalted butter, room temperature
140g granulated sugar
75g light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
135g coarsely chopped pecans, lightly toasted and cooled

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the oats.
In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter, sugars and vanilla until light and creamy. Add the egg and mix to combine. Scrape the sides of the bowl occasionally. In low speed, add the dry ingredients in 3 additions, mixing just until incorporated. Mix in the pecans. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F; line two large baking sheets with baking paper.
Roll 1 rounded tablespoon of dough per cookie into a ball and place onto prepared sheets 5cm (2in) apart. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden around the edges. Cool in the sheets over a wire rack for 10 minutes, then carefully transfer to the rack to cool completely.

Makes about 45 cookies
