In this episode, Claire Saffitz makes the best oatmeal cookies. This is the Oat & Pecan Brittle Cookies recipe from Dessert Person. This chewy, butterscotchy oat cookie might not be the kind you can casually whip up on a whim. But, if you go through the steps to make it, like making the pecan brittle, grinding the oats, and browning the butter, you will be rewarded with hands-down the most delicious oat cookie you’ve ever tried. Somewhere between a lacy cookie and a chewy one, it’s giant, buttery, and sweet-salty. Make them along with Claire and remember to keep some of the dough frozen so you’re never more than 20 minutes away from a perfect warm cookie. Subscribe for more Dessert Person content from Claire!
