Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookie Dunkers Recipe


I don’t know when it happened, but these little pecan chocolate chip cookie dunkers have somehow made it into the permanent holiday baking rotation at my house.

I didn’t grow up having these every year. My husband didn’t have them every year either.

I simply saw this recipe in a magazine one year, decided to try it, and now, approximately ten years later, it’s not Christmas without them. I only make them at Christmas, but I think they’ve made the cut every single year.

And that’s saying something because my holiday baking list is definitely getting out of control. There are too many delicious cookie recipes and it’s hard to decide which to make every year.

So, if something is making the cut every year, you know it’s a great cookie recipe.

Not too many recipes make the cut every year here. Like I said, the list is out of control and we need to stop somewhere!

Whipped shortbread is always made, because it’s not Christmas without it. Same with Nanaimo bars. Gotta have them.

And, evidently, pecan chocolate chip cookie dunkers. Who knew?

I didn’t even really realize that I made these every year until I thought about it, but we always have them at Christmas. That’s the only time for some reason, but they do always get made.

Clearly it’s an amazing cookie that you need to have in your life too!

These chocolate chip cookie dunkers are similar to biscotti in that they’re baked twice and are a crisp, dunk-able cookie, but you make them in a baking dish and then cut them into long cookies.

You need to try these easy, tasty cookies – you just might find a new favourite too!

These easy to make pecan chocolate chip cookie dunkers are like biscotti – a crisp chocolate chip cookie that you can easily dunk in your milk or coffee! It’s totally worth tucking extras in your lunchbox for a 3 o’clock pick-me-up.

  • 0.5 Unsalted Butter softened
  • 0.5 Brown Sugar lightly packed
  • 0.25 Granulated Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1.25 All-Purpose Flour
  • 0.25 Baking Soda
  • 0.5 Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips
  • 0.5 Pecans chopped
  • 6 Semisweet Chocolate chopped
  • 1 Unsalted Butter


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with foil, letting the foil hang over the edges of the pan. Set aside.
  • In a stand mixer, or in a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the egg and vanilla and mix well.
  • Add the flour and baking soda and mix until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.
  • Press the cookie dough into the prepared pan, spreading it evenly.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown and the center is set.
  • Let cool in the pan on a wire rack for 1 hour.
  • Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F. Using the foil, lift out the cookies.
  • Cut the square in half, and then cut each half into 12, 3/4-inch cookies.
  • Lay the cookies cut side down on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until crisp, turning carefully halfway through the baking time.
  • Cool completely on the cookie sheet.
  • In a microwave safe bowl, microwave the chopped chocolate with the butter at 50% power in 30 second increments.
  • Stir after each 30 second interval until chocolate is fully melted.
  • Dip one side of each cookie in the melted chocolate and lay on a piece of wax paper to allow the chocolate to set.
  • Cookies will keep well in an airtight container at room temperature for one week, or freeze for up to 3 months.
