Tips to Making Triple Chunk Honey Pecan Cookies


  • In order to have optimal results with your pecan cookies, you’ll need to bake cookies on parchment paper or a silicone baking mat for easy removal.
  • Prior to getting ready to bake your pecan cookies, take the eggs out of your refrigerator so that they can reach room temperature as you should use room temperature eggs because they will mix better with the cookie dough.  If you do use eggs right from the refrigerator it’s not going to ruin your cookies, you might just have to adjust the baking time a minute or two.  
  • Your pecan cookies will generally stay fresh for about 3 days in an airtight container.  I always toss the heels from bread into my container and this will extend the freshness and softness of cookies for 3 or 4 more days by keeping moisture out of the pecan cookies.

Common Questions About General Baking 


Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about general baking:

How long should eggs sit out to be room temperature? 

About 30 minutes.

Why should you preheat your oven before baking cookies? 

I admit that I was awful about this growing up!  Promotes even baking times since every batch is starting at the same temperature, preheating is vital when working with leavening agents like yeast, baking powder, and baking soda as they react with heat.  

How do I know if my baking powder is still good?

To test to see if your baking powder is still good you can mix  1/3 cup hot water and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.  If the mixture bubbles, your baking powder is still good.

How do I know if my baking soda is still good?

To test to see if your baking soda is still good you can mix 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and 1 teaspoon of baking soda together.  If the mixture fizzes your baking soda is still good.
