Recipe Ingredients for Hermit Cookies

98 g unsalted butter
175 g dark brown sugar
2 eggs
1/2 tsp vanilla
163 g all-purpose flour
78 g whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt

Recipe Directions for Hermit Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (177 degrees C) and place rack in center of oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.

  2. In the bowl of your electric mixer, or with a hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed.

  3. In a separate bowl sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and spices. Add to the butter and egg mixture and beat until combined. Fold in the raisins, chopped dates, and chopped pecans.

  4. Drop the batter by tablespoonfuls onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing the cookies about two inches (5 cm) apart. Bake for about 10 minutes or until the cookies or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack for about 5 minutes before removing from pan.
