Heavenly Honey Pecan Cookies

Updated on February 2, 2011
Thin, chewy and delicious cookies.
Thin, chewy and delicious cookies.

Recently I was making my favorite dessert: cheesecake. I had a recipe I liked on hand, but wanted something different for the crust, than the usual crumbled graham cracker/vanilla wafer recipe. After looking over the other ingredients, I decided to try my hand at creating my own cookie 'crust' recipe... no crumbling necessary.

The resulting cookies were so delicious, I have decided to share the recipe.

Heavenly Honey Pecan Cookies


  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 2 eggs, slightly beaten
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups flour, sifted
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large sized bowl beat butter, eggs, sugar honey and vanilla together.
  3. Add dry ingredients and mix well.
  4. Scoop walnut-sized balls of dough onto a cookie sheet, press flat with your fingers or a glass, or roll dough into a 2" log and slice 1/4" thick. Bake 10-12 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet, before moving to wire rack.  They are very soft.
  6. Store in an airtight container.

Makes: 5 dozen 2 1/2" cookies

      Thank you missbiodegraded!

      I always bake mine on a well seasoned stoneware pan, and have never had trouble with sticking, but I can imagine it would be a problem with a metal pan.

      Thank you for the feedback.

      Gorgeous taste and texture, only problem I had is that they seemed to get stuck to the tray much more easily than other recipes. Apart from that, wonderful!

      Sheesh, I think I gained 5 pounds just looking at this recipe! I must write them down and add them to my growing recipe book. :)

      These look similar to a recipe my husband loves...but even better!

      I've gotta make butter first (it's easier than getting to the store in the snowstorm we're having), then maybe I'll try these today.
