Maple Pecan Oatmeal Cookies


1/2 cup butter, softened
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 egg
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup quick cooking oats
1/2 cup chopped pecans
24 pecan halves (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, spices, baking soda, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, beat the butter with the brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the maple syrup and egg and beat until well mixed. (This will create a slightly soupy mixture).

Slowly beat in the dry-ingredient mixture until just blended, then stir in the nuts.

Drop by tablespoon onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving about 1″ of space between rounds. Top with pecan halves if using.

Bake for about 9-12 minutes, until golden. Cool 10 minutes on baking sheets and transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

These cookies are putting me in the mood for fall. If I buy some oats, I'll have all of the ingredients to whip them up. I've got some maple syrup that needs to be used. Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.
