Easy Pecan Pie Cookie Recipe (2024)

This pecan pie cookie recipe has been sponsored by Eggland’s Best Eggs but all opinions expressed here are my own.

When I was growing up in New England, I’ pretty sure I never tasted a single pecan. We were a walnut family, as were most of the people in my state. You always put walnuts in cookies, quick breads and trail mix. I’m sure the grocery store probably carried pecans but they never once entered my mother’s kitchen. After college, I moved to Texas. Let me tell you something about Texans….they take their pecan’s VERY seriously! The first year I was there, a friend gave us a huge bag full of pecans from his tree and we spent hours cracking the shells and eating the tasty insides. Since I had so many pecans, I decided to make a pecan pie. Being from New England, I was thrilled to find a maple pecan pie recipe that used maple syrup instead of corn syrup. Can I just say that my southern friends were NOT impressed? In fact, they were downright horrified that I had ruined a perfectly good pecan pie with maple syrup! Sheesh…southerners are very serious about their pecan pie! Do you have an ingredient that your state is known for?

Easy Pecan Pie Cookie Recipe (1)

Pecans are just as popular here in Georgia as they were in Texas. When I came across a pecan pie cookie recipe, I was tempted to add chocolate or coconut or some other interesting ingredient. But, no. I decided not to mess with a good thing and risk my Georgia neighbors finding out! Georgia is one of the country’s top pecan producers….over 1000 pecan farmers grow nearly 100 million pounds of pecans every year! Recently, Eggland’s Best Eggs challenged me to create a recipe using their eggs and a local ingredient popular in my state. I knew for sure it had to be pecans. Since my family doesn’t really eat a lot of pie, I decided to make this pecan pie cookie recipe instead.

I cannot stress enough how important high quality ingredients are to your pecan pie cookie recipe. PLEASE do not substitute the real butter with anything artificial. I love Eggland’s Best Eggs because they offer an organic variety at my local grocery store. Did you know that compared to ordinary eggs, each Eggland’s Best egg offers four times more vitamin D, more than double the omega-3s, and contains 25% less saturated fat? By choosing Eggland’s Best eggs over ordinary eggs, you are getting an egg that is fresher, tastes better, and contains more vitamins and nutrients. Combine those eggs with real butter and locally grown pecans and the result was a pecan pie cookie recipe that the whole family loved!
