  • 1 stick butter
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 1 tablespoon light corn syrup
  • 3/4 cup quick-cooking rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • 2 In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat.
  • 3 When it foams, add the brown sugar, stirring until it dissolves, 2 to 3 minutes.
  • 4 Stir in the molasses and corn syrup, then the oats, pecans, flour, salt, and vanilla.
  • 5 Stir until well blended.
  • 6 Remove from the heat and drop teaspoonfuls onto a parchment- or aluminum foil-lined baking sheet at least 2 inches apart, as the cookies will spread during baking.
  • 7 Bake for 7 to 9 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown and the edges slightly darker.
  • 8 Remove from the oven and let cook on the pan for 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly firmed.
  • 9 With a metal spatula, transfer the cookies to wire racks. If desired, while still pliable, form them around the handle of a wooden spoon.
