Main Ingredients

1/2 cup butter

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 cups all-purpose, unbleached flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 cup chopped or halved pecans


whole walnuts on each cookie


1Combine first three ingredients in a bowl and whip for about 3 minutes. Ensure the butter is at room temperature so that when whipped with the sugars it gets nice and fluffy.
