This recipe has been several years in the development. Every time I think he's made it perfect, he adds some little twist and it gets even better.
Our daughter gave the recipe it's name and it has become a holiday treat.
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
2 tsp Mexican vanilla (Mexican vanilla has a different flavor and goes great with chocolate!)
1 1/2 cup butter flavored Crisco
1 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
3 cups flour
1 cup chopped pecans
12 ounces dark chocolate chips (semi sweet)
12 ounces white chocolate chips
12 ounces milk chocolate chunks
In stand mixer, cream together Crisco and sugars until smooth.
Add eggs, vanilla, salt, cinnamon and baking soda and mix well.
Blend in oats.
Add flour a little at a time and mix well.
Mix in pecans and chocolates.
Drop by heaped teaspoons (we have a small scoop that works great) on ungreased cookie sheets (silpats or parchment paper is highly recommended!)
Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
Cool on a rack.
Makes 120 cookies.
You could make these larger, adjust the baking time accordingly.
