Peach and Pecan Cookies

August 12, 2014Teresa

Peach and Pecan Cookies are terrific. Delicious sugar cookies are filled with fresh peaches and pecans and turn into one incredibly good cookie. I actually started off with the recipe for Mimi’s Potato Chip Cookies, but instead of using potato chips I used peaches. I loved the way these turned out.

The nice thing about Peach and Pecan Cookies is they only use 6 ingredients. So these cookies are really simple, yet quite delectable as well. I pressed the cookies down slightly with a fork before baking and sprinkled a little additional sugar over the tops. Thankfully, I packed these goodies away in cookie containers right away or I would have cleaned out the whole batch!

Many of you know I’ve been trying to use up peaches from all the peach trees in our back yard. I’ve been on a peach dessert roll in my efforts to turn out great tasting desserts filled with peaches. John likes to give cookies away as gifts frequently to folks he runs into so I’ve stashed about 30 containers of cookies into my freezers and asked him to start giving them away!

While I’ve made several cakes, desserts and cobblers with the peaches, this was my first effort at cookies. I was brainstorming what recipes I could use where peaches could be either added or replace other ingredients in cookie recipes and this cookie came to mind. I wasn’t wrong. The combination of peaches and pecans in cookie form was fantastic.

If you want a scrumptious way to use up peaches, then consider this amazing cookie recipe. You won’t be disappointed and neither will your kids! You will have them all eating out of your hand after a bite of these jewels. Peach and Pecan Cookies are a great addition to any party. You won’t walk home with a single one once word gets out about how tasty these cookies are!
