Vanishing Pecan/Oatmeal Cookies

They are called this for a good reason. Make them and you’ll see. Whew! Gone…all of them.

  • 1/2 cup plus 6 tbsp. softened butter
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla
  • 1  1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 3 cups Quaker Oats (not instant)
  • 1 cup chopped pecans


Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl beat the butter and sugars until creamy.

Add the eggs, one at a time, and add the vanilla. Beat well until well combined and smooth.

Sift together the flour, baking soda and cinnamon and mix. Add to the sugar mixture and mix well. Stir in the nuts and oatmeal, combining well.

Drop by generous teaspoonfuls onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake for about 10 minutes until golden. Cool one minute on the cookie sheets and remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

You can, if you wish, to sprinkle some icing sugar evenly over the cookies while they are hot. The little treats are crispy, tasty and  a comfort food. Truly yummy.
