Butter Pecan White Chocolate Cookies

August 5, 2019Teresa

Butter Pecan White Chocolate Cookies are awesome. Especially if you enjoy pecans. This 5-ingredient recipe is so quick and so easy. It starts with a Butter Pecan Cake Mix. Simply add oil, eggs, white chocolate chips and pecans. That’s it. The taste is incredibly good. The cookie itself is soft but the pecans give it added crunch. If you like nuts in your cookies, this recipe is fantastic.

I have so many different cake mix cookie recipes. Almost all of them include white chocolate chips. NOT vanilla chips. I have Strawberry cookies and bars. I have Funfetti Cookies and bars. I have Gingerbread. I have Carrot Cake cookies and bars. Pina Colada. Almond Joy. Even Cherry. I also have several Funfetti Cookies without white chocolate chips including Coconut, Chocolate and Red Velvet. I even have a gluten free version.

Cake mix recipes are wonderful. They’re incredibly quick and easy to make and turn out great every time. The cookies usually have a superb texture–soft and chewy. I think I like them the best because they’re just so incredibly easy. You don’t have to have a lot of ingredients on hand. Most of the recipes are only 4 or 5 ingredients. When you make as many cookies or brownies in bulk like I do, 4 or 5 ingredient recipes are terrific.

John gave these cookies out to some friends in Virginia a couple of weeks ago. I got high marks for how delicious they were. I am constantly stocking my freezers with containers of cookies or brownies because he likes to give them out so frequently. He knows I don’t mind baking or whipping something up on the fly. So every couple of months I try to make up 12-15 containers of cookies. Each container holds about 24 brownies or about 32-36 cookies. He’s asked me to make up some diabetic cookies, so I’m going to have to find some recipes for that soon.

If you enjoy the rich flavors of butter pecan and white chocolate, you’ll love this dessert. They are totally satisfying and you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to make them. Plus, they’re just plain good… 🙂

Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Roll cookie dough into balls and place on prepared cookie sheets. (I had to keep my hands slightly moist while rolling).

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs.
  3. Stir in white chocolate chips and pecans.
  4. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray.
  5. Roll cookies into balls or scoop cookie dough with a scoop and place on prepared baking sheets.
  6. Bake at 350° for 13-15 minutes or until done.
Recipe Notes

NOTE: Because I was baking three racks of cookies at once, my cookies took 18 minutes to make. I also rotated the trays every six to seven minutes.

NOTE: These cookies must be rotated during baking or the white chocolate chips will brown on the top rack.

NOTE: I found it easier to keep my hands moist while rolling cookie dough into balls.

NOTE: Be sure to use true white chocolate chips. Most stores only carry white or vanilla chips. They are not the same. In the Dallas area the only two stores that carry white chocolate chips are Kroger and Trader Joe’s.

    Have you tried using semi-sweet chocolate chips in the pecan cookies? I’m not a huge fan of white chocolate so I was just wondering. I will make them as your recipe suggests first before I might experiment. Thanks

      Hi, Marie. I bet they would taste fantastic with semi-sweet chocolate chips in them. They’d have a richer flavor for sure. Enjoy.
