Ingredients

The Cookies:

  • 2 ¼ cups flour I have used Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free flour and it works very well, not quite the same texture, but good flavor
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup butter
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¾ cups granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla paste
  • 2 large eggs
  • cups rolled oats
  • cups chopped pecans
  • 10 oz good quality semi sweet chocolate chips

The Orange Glaze:

  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 T fresh orange juice
  • 1 tsp orange zest

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and place rack in center of oven.

For Cookies:

  1. Place flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda in a large bowl and set aside. Cream butter and sugars in mixer (I love my Kitchen Aid!). Add eggs and vanilla paste, mix till combined. Slowly add flour mixture and whole oats, mix well. Add chocolate chips and pecans, fold in by hand. Place by large spoonfuls onto parchment covered cookie sheet and bake for 9-11 minutes. Allow cookies to cool, then glaze.

For Glaze:

  1. Zest orange, set aside. Place powdered sugar in a large bowl and add orange juice a little at a time. When consistency is like thick honey (really thick, barely pourable)stop adding juice. Add zest and mix. Drizzle lightly on cooled cookies. Serve when glaze is set.
