These Cinnamon Pecan Cookies are so good! Easy to make and the perfect treat. The cinnamon chips and the pecans are the perfect combination and go so well together. Honestly these these cookies are good year round, but we love them in the Fall months and they are perfect for the holiday season.

Cinnamon Pecan Cookies Simple Ingredients:


White Sugar

Brown Sugar


Vanilla Flavoring

Ground Cinnamon

All Purpose Flour

Cinnamon Chips


Now, cinnamon chips can be hard to find year round. I see them mostly during the holiday season. They are made by Hershey’s and are just like chocolate chips, but are all cinnamon. However if we can’t find them, we just make our own. Here is the recipe for our Homemade Cinnamon Chips!

These cookies are perfect for any gathering and would be a great addition to any Fall tailgate! Delicious with a cup of coffee. They would also make a great gift for the holidays.
