I finished up my bag of pecans from the Green Valley Pecan Store with this recipe. These cookies tasted like and had a similar chewy/delicate texture to my Chocolate Frosting Cookies. The pecans added a wonderful crunch. Peanuts would work great, too.
½ cup chopped pecans
¾ cup powdered sugar
⅓ cup cocoa
2 Tablespoons flour
Pinch of salt
1 egg white
¼ teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
Combine powdered sugar, cocoa, flour, and salt. Mix in egg and vanilla. Stir in pecans.
Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto the baking sheets.
Bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool completely.
Yields 1 dozen
