Banana White Chocolate and Cinnamon Toasted Pecan Cookies

Ingredients

Cinnamon Toasted Pecans

  • 1 1/2 cups Fisher Pecan Halves
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons water

Cookie Dough

  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 medium very ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups white chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Place Fisher Pecan Halves into a medium non stick skillet over medium heat. Stir in sugar, cinnamon and water until combined. Stir and let pecans bubble cook for about 5 minutes. Mixture will become thick. Pour pecans onto parchment paper to cool for at least 15 minutes before adding to cookie dough.
  2. To prepare cookie dough, cream butter and sugars into a large mixing bowl. Add egg and vanilla mixing to combine. Mash bananas and add them to the bowl, stirring. Add flour, baking soda, salt and white chocolate chips stirring. Place cinnamon toasted pecans into a large ziploc and crush slightly. I still kept mostly large pieces. Add to bowl and mix to combine.
  3. With a medium cookie scoop, place dough onto a large baking sheet lined with a silpat liner or parchment paper. Leave a good inch and a half between each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-16 minutes until golden brown. You want these too bake longer than you typically bake cookies. Let cool on baking sheet for 15 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
