My Favorite Recipe – Coconut Pecan Butter Crunch Cookies

Gale Gand, founding executive pastry chef and partner of the Five Diamond,  whipped up a batch of delicious Coconut Pecan Butter Crunch Cookies for the campaign.  The cookie dough is perfect for making well in advance before a gathering!  All you need to do is roll the cookie dough into balls and freeze them.  When you want to treat your hungry guests, just place the 1 ¼ inch balls on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake them for 10 to 12 minutes at 350 degrees.  I don’t know about you, but in my opinion nothing makes a house feel homier on the holidays than the smell of fresh baked cookies!  Here is the mouthwatering recipe!

Coconut Pecan Butter Crunch Cookies
Serves: Makes 36 Cookies
  • 8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted Challenge Butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups cornflakes
  • ½ cup chopped toasted pecans
  • ½ cup sweetened shredded coconut
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixer with a paddle attachment, cream butter then add the sugar and vanilla and continue creaming till well combined. In a separate bowl stir together the flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt then add to the mixer and mix on low. Then add the cornflakes, pecans and coconut and gently mix to combine. Roll into 1 ¼ inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheets spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, or until very lightly browned. Cool 2 minutes before removing from the cookie sheet.

I voted for Gale’s scrumptious cookie recipe to help her win $5,000 to donate to her selected charity, the West Deerfield Food Bank .  However, you might like the Savory Olive and Parmesan Scones recipe submitted by Chef Ashton for the campaign or the Apple Pie with Hot Buttered Rum Sauce by Avery Pursell the most, so please check the recipes out and vote for your favorite!

    The cookies and scones look awesome, but I’m not feeling such a sloppy looking Apple Pie even with the interesting sauce.
