These gluten free butter pecan cookies are a very easy recipe to make. These are the best chewy cookies with a delicious brown butter flavor. I love how soft these cookies are. They melt in your mouth! 



2 cups Gluten Free Flour
2 Tbsp. Arrowroot Powder
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 tsp. Baking Soda
1 cup Unsalted Butter, browned
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract
2 large Eggs
1 cup Buttered Pecans, finely chopped (see next recipe)
Pecan halves for decorations


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, arrowroot powder, salt, cinnamon and baking soda. Set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer place the slightly cooled browned butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla. Blend until combined.

While the mixer is running add the eggs one at a time. Blend until smooth.

Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture. Blend until just combined.

Add the buttered pecans and mix until just blended.

Place dough in the refrigerator for up to 2 hours. The dough should easily form a ball when chilled.

Using a tablespoon place a dozen cookies on each of your baking sheets. Press a pecan half into each cookie.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10-13 minutes or until the cookies are slightly browned.
