Multicultural Inspiration from... the world of baking!
What you see here, ladies and gentlemen (I hope, otherwise I'm just a crazy person with an imagined audience!), are slightly smaller, pecan versions of my secret chocolate chip cookie recipe.
Most of my good friends have tried these, and none of them haven't loved them (at least, none have said it to my face...). They're also quite a popular choice for house parties, having been dubbed the "drinking cookies" more than once.
What's so secret about these cookies? No one but me knows the recipe. It's a recipe that's been adapted from about 5 different types of recipes, many years ago from an amalgamation of mum's cook books. There's no particularly "out-there" ingredients to make these cookies so magnificent, but exact measurements and a very specific length of time in the oven are required.
What makes them so special? They have a slightly hardened shell, with a soft, but not overly gooey/chewy centre. The standard "secret recipe" is milk chocolate chunks, coconut and macadamia, but I decided to try a pecan version. Verdict? Delicious.
So, am I just going to tease you, or will I hand over the recipe? The recipe will be handed over... eventually! When I finally write my cook book, this will be the first recipe to go into it! But for now, enjoy the eye candy :)
