pecan-brown sugar crack-ups

Pecan-Brown Sugar Crack-Ups are an interactive treat…a cookie baked as a slab that you (or you plus buddies) “crack up” into shards and bits. The dough for these comes together with just a few whizzes of the food processor. What you get are streusel-like crumbs that you press into a sheet tray to bake as one mass. The pecans are completely ground down in processing the dough, but the cookies certainly do have a toasty nuttiness, a delicate texture and a nice brown color. I made just one-third of the recipe, but still formed the dough into the same sized (quarter-sheet) tray used for a full batch. My baked cookie sheet was nice and slim, but not so thin that it crumbled apart, and I was able to break it into some good-sized chunks. We’ve been enjoying bits and pieces of this both at night with a little ice cream and in the morning with a little coffee.

For the recipe, see Dorie’s Cookies by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!
