Pecan Pie Decorated Cookies + Brown Sugar and Orange Cut-Outs

Pecan Pie Decorated Cookies + a recipe for Brown Sugar and Orange Cut-Outs

As much as I love pie, and I do, I also want a non-pie dessert option at Thanksgiving. Let's be honest...you'll need Thanksgiving desserts to last all week. There's nothing better than waking up and remembering there are still cookies and pie waiting in the kitchen.

Inspired by Sweet Sugarbelle's pumpkin pie slice cookies, I decided to go the pecan pie route. Not only are these decorated like pecan pie, but the cut-out cookies are a nod to the traditional pecan pie flavors.

My husband took a big batch of these to work and called later in the day to say,
"These are the BEST decorated cookies I've ever eaten!" 
That man has been eating decorated cookies for as long as I've been making them...about 18 years!

Brown sugar and toasted pecans are always a classic pairing, but that orange zest adds a pop of freshness that really makes these cookies special.
(Psst...that's Sugarbelle's multi-cutter. It's awesome.)

Decorating could not be easier. That's just what you want Thanksgiving week, right? Simple but delicious! You can even make them several days ahead, so no tying up the oven when it's full of turkey, dressing, sweet potatoes, and (regular, non-cookie) pie.

You might even be inspired to serve them on your grandmother's dishes like I did!

I'm sharing the recipe and the full decorating tutorial over on the Imperial Sugar blog, Sweetalk.
