Ingredients

  • 2/3 c firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 c coconut sugar
  • 1 c 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt 1/2 tsp if using salted butter
  • 2 tsp homemade vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp raw Apple Cider Vinegar ACV
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 large egg
  • 2/3 c chopped pecans
  • 2 1/2 c einkorn flour or other flour of your choice
  • 1 - 2 c Cool Mint Carob Baking Buttons 1 cup will give you a subtle mint flavor, 2 cups is awesome!

Instructions

  • Start by preheating your oven to 300°F.
  • In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars until soft and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and beat until combined.
  • Add the vanilla extract and ACV, and beat for 2 minutes.
  • While that is beating, combine the einkorn flour, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture a little at a time, beating well after each addition. Don't forget to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Finally, add the chopped pecans and the baking buttons and mix briefly.
  • Using a cookie scoop or 2 spoons, place mounds of cookie dough on your baking trays about 2" apart.
  • For crunchy, crispy cookies, bake for 20-22 minutes. For chewier cookies, bake for 15-17 minutes.

Notes

As always, ovens vary so keep a close eye on the first batch so you don't over bake them. 
The peppermint is going to seen a little extreme when you take them out of the oven, because some of the oils are baking off. So don't worry if it smells really strong.
