Candy Corn White Chocolate and Pecan Cookies

Yum

Bring on fall! Having always been a fan of candy corn, when I saw this recipe, my mouth immediately started watering. With the addition of white chocolate and pecans, it tastes more like a heavenly chewy candy bar as opposed to a cookie. The only drawback is, you're not going to lose weight by eating these. But to mimic a lot of people who love to indulge themselves with the good things in life (that maybe aren't so good for you)... YOLO!

Ingredients:

- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 TBS vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tsp. corn starch
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 cups candy corn
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, combine first 5 ingredients (down to vanilla). Mix until light and fluffy. In a separate bowl combine the flour, corn starch, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the cookie batter and once incorporated, add the rest of the ingredients. Scoops mounds of cookie dough onto an ungreased baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 10 minutes until the edges have set and tops are beginning to set. (They harden as they cool and you still want them heavenly... or chewy. :) Let cool and enjoy!! If you'd like a printer-friendly version of this recipe, Click Here.

NOTE: For thicker cookies, refrigerate batter for 3 hours before baking.
