Soft Pecan Cookies
with Nuts and Seeds
A dehydrator helps firm the cookies a little, but if no dehydrator is available never fear: adding additional ground flaxseed -- a tablespoon at a time -- creates a dough that is less sticky and can be enjoyed immediately without cooking.
Soak the pecans in water for 30-60 minutes to soften.
In a food processor, mix all the ingredients together to form a thick paste. A tablespoon at a time, roll into 1” balls, and place on a non-stick dehydrator sheet. Flatten each ball with two fingers into a ¼ inch thick circle (moisten fingers with water if dough is too sticky). Dehydrate at desired temperature until dried out and soft. Makes about 3 dozen bite-size cookies.
Variation: Chocolate Pecan Cookies – Roll raw dough balls in cacao powder before flattening.
