Pipe Dream #326: To Sound the Siren Call – AK Cookies


The quote from the original recipe states:

“These cookies are best when they have fully cooled, though you will undoubtedly eat some warm because it will take you years to develop the patience to ignore their siren’s call until they are ready. You are only human.”




That is a gummy bear for size context.


I know you are only human. You know you are only human. YOU know that IIII am only human.

Paging all humans,


P.S. I deeply wish that I would have had coconut on hand to throw into these. Alas I did not and will therefore be making them again next week with coconut included.

AK Cookies

Adapted from Lucky Peach

1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, room temperature

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

6 ounces milk chocolate chips (about 1 cup, you could use dark chocolate–that would be incredible)

1 cup quick oats

1/2 cup chopped pecans

Heat the oven to 350°F.


Using a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until pale yellow, homogeneous and smooth. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix for another 5 minutes. Add the dry ingredients in order, mixing them in on low speed, just until each is incorporated into the dough.

Chill the dough in the fridge for at least 3o minutes, then scoop all the dough into balls, about 2 tablespoons each. and chill it on a quarter sheet pan in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before baking. Space them well on a Silpat or parchment-lined sheet pan and bake for 1112 minutes. Let them cool a bit on the sheets, then transfer them to wire racks to fully cool before serving.
