Smoked Chocolate Chip Cookies
Smoked Chocolate Chip Cookies are a BBQers dream. Smoked chocolate chips are added to a sweet cookie batter to make the best chocolate chip cookies ever.
Servings: 36 cookies
- ¾ cup dark brown sugar
- ¾ cup white sugar
- 1 cup salted butter softened
- 2 Tablespoons molasses
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 ¾ cups all purpose flour can increase to 3 cups if dough is too sticky and wet
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ½ cups whole pecans cold smoked for added smoky flavor
- 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chips cold smoked for added smoky flavor
Preheat your pellet smoker (or oven) to 325 degrees F. I recommend using a mild wood like pecan or maple. These cookies can also be baked in the oven at the same temperature.
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, molasses and white and brown sugars with an electric mixer.
While the mixer is running on low speed, add in the eggs one at a time until incorporated and then mix in the vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the dry ingredients into the batter 1 cup at a time, mixing until fully incorporated before adding more.
Turn off the mixer and use a rubber spatula to stir in the chocolate chips and pecans.
Form the dough into 2 oz balls and place on a baking sheet pan lined with parchment paper (about 12 cookies per sheet pan).
Place the baking sheet on your pellet grill grates, close the lid, and bake for 12-13 minutes.
Baking at 325 on a smoker will not give you a lot of smoke flavor. If you want to try more smokiness in your cookies, you can cold smoke the chocolate chips (using a smoke tube) for 30-60 minutes.
