Servings: 3 cookies
- 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!
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.
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.
