I'll start this thread out with a few notes.

1st, this is a fragile cookie. I tried several things to strengthen it but it took away from the flavor each time so I settled for the fact that it is delicate in nature but the flavor is wort it.

2nd, after these came out of the oven and cooled. I set the cookie sheet in the freezer to quick set the cookies.

3rd, I let these cookies sit out on the rack over night and they were much sturdier in the morning.

Peanut Butter Pecan Cocoa Drop Cookies. makes 3 dozen 1/2 carb each

1/2 cup sf lc creamy peanut butter
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 cup chopped pecans
2 tsp. vanilla

2 T. Hershey's Cocoa Special Dark

Yummm! Sounds kinda like a no-bake cookie but without the oatmeal--oh, and you have to bake them! I'll try these soon!

OK Kevin, I'm confused. You take them out of the oven, cool on rack for a minute then put them back on the cookie sheet and put in the freezer? How long did you leave in the freezer? Did you leave them on the parchment overnight or just set them on the rack so air could circulate all around?

What do you put the carb count at?

Sorry for so many questions for what looks like a very "simple" :hyst: recipe!

Scratch that question, just re-read your post - 1/2 carb each!

It's getting late and I'm not reading well!:rofl:

Tweaker, you take them out of the oven and let them set on the cookie sheet for 1 min. Then slide the parchment on to wire rack to cool completely.
5 to 10 mins.

Then slide the parchment back on cookie sheet and freeze for 15 min.

Then back to the wire rack for overnight still on the parchment.

The key being not to handle the cookies till they are set.

Ah! - Thanks for the explanation Kevin. That's kinda what I thought, but I probably would have taken them off the parchment when taking out of the freezer and broke them all apart.:laugh:

Just wondering, are these chewy, crunchy, cakey or candy-like? I have everything on hand and love all these flavors. Thanks for all your experimenting and sharing, Kevin!

If you eat them before they are set.....they fall apart in your hand but have a great chocolate peanut butter flavor. Once set, they hold together but melt in your mouth with the same flavor.
adj. cakey creamy.
