2 eggs
1 1/3 c firmly-packed brown sugar
5 tbs gluten-free flour mix
1/8 tsp xanthan gum
1/8 tsp salt
1/8 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1 c broken pecans

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

2. Whip eggs until light. Gradually add flour, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, and vanilla.

3. Beat the batter until smooth, then add broken pecans.

4. Grease and flour cookie sheets. Drop the batter on them, spaced well apart, from a teaspoon. Bake about 8 minutes. Remove from sheets while still warm.

  1. These sound SO good. I love pecans soooo much. I’m especially interested in trying this recipe because it was created by a teen??? That’s amazing.

  2. I made these last night and they turned out really well. I highly recommend them! My husband isn’t a huge pecan fan but he still likes it.

  3. Made these over the weekend and they were fabulous! There’s nothing like baking cookies to get the kids excited…and to make a huge mess in the kitchen ahhh!

  4. Hi Tina sounds really good. @Jenn glad to know your hubby liked it because my kids and husband aren’t big on pecans either but I really want to try this recipe!
