Quick, easy, moist cookies adapted from a double-chocolate recipe from the West Wind Pony Club Cookbook.

Makes 30-36 cookies.

Preheat oven to 375°F and lightly grease two cookie sheets.

Cream together:

2/3 cup vegetable shortening
1 1/2 cups brown sugar

Add and mix vigorously:

1 Tbsp water
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs

Sift together in a separate bowl:

1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose white flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbsp ground cinnamon

Mix dry ingredients into wet a bit at a time, stirring well.

Add:

1 cup pecan pieces

Drop 2" balls into cookie sheets, leaving 2" spaces between cookies.

Bake 9 minutes… cookies will still be soft and a bit shiny when done. Wait maybe 5 minutes then transfer with a thin spatula or other thin lifter to wire rack.

Blueberry Peach Crisp in progress - fresh fruit layer complete


Easy, delicious Blueberry Peach Crisp recipe behind the cut )

What's especially lovely about this particular recipe is the particular combination of ingredients for the topping. It's relatively light on butter, yet the nuts (I usually use pecans) & sesame seeds keep it very satisfying. All in all, easy prep and a reliably delicious result. Excellent for dinner parties and using up excess fruit.
