Bourbon Chocolate Pecan Cookies

Well, it’s another year gone by and I know some of you made resolutions about losing just a little of that weight we’ve all gained since Thanksgiving. Husband is moaning about getting fat and it’s all my fault but I’m not the one who made him go back for seconds and then top it off with dessert.

I am going to give the sweet treats a little break for awhile after I share this one. My daughter sent me the recipe for these wonderfully rich cookies and of course I couldn’t leave well enough alone, just had to alter and add to it a little bit, especially the pecans!

Hope your New Year’s started off well and continues throughout the year. As for us, we had an outside fire in our pot belly stove on our back porch New Year’s Eve and enjoyed our neighbors putting of firecrackers in the distance. Of course, we brought in the new year with some homemade cornbread smothered with fresh cooked black eyed peas to bring us luck to which it did already. Husband won $130 dollars last night on a lotto ticket. One more number and it would have been, pack up our home because we’re movin’ out of Dodge……………………Enjoy!

Hello again everyone as I have been very lax in the kitchen area of late. But I do have some things up my sleeve for the near future and I just wanted to wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving! It’s gonna be a little quiet here tomorrow, just Husband, daughter and myself. Kenny’s daughter and family were gonna come down from up north and that got cancelled. One granddaughter and her family will be going to her hubby’s family this year and our other granddaughter is on the verge of having her second son, Niklaus who at least will be joining us for the Christmas holiday!

tomato soup cookies 003

Some time ago I posted our family’s Tomato Soup Cake that my grandma and mom made every year for Thanksgiving. Follow the same recipe for the cookies by going to the link I provided on tomato soup cake. The only difference here is that you make them by dropping a tablespoonful onto a greased cookie sheet and bake them in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes. As you can see by the picture, I baked some to the point I thought they were done enough and the second batch a little longer and they came out a little darker. The darker, more well done cookies were the choice of us all, but you can decide for yourself according to your preference. Our choice was based on the crunchiness of the cookie while they still retained their chewiness. I had been wanting to try this for quite some time now and my sister who also makes this cake every year, thought it was a great idea also; can’t wait to tell her tomorrow when we talk……………..  Well again, Happy Thanksgiving to all our friends out there and good vittles are right around the corner, YEAH, my kind of holiday!!!!
