Crème Fraîche Chive Cookies with Pecans

© 2024 |

© 2024 |

These melt-in-the-mouth, buttery cookies are made with pecans, fresh chives, Dijon-mustard and sour cream. Perfect for any time of the day! Be warned though - once you start eating one, you might find it difficult to stop! These cookies freeze well. Wait for the cookies to cool completely, then transfer them to a reusable freezer-safe bag or container lined with wax or parchment paper in a single layer. They will keep well for up to 2 months.

  • 150 g Pecans
  • 250 g Plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp Coconut sugar
  • 3/4 tsp Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Black pepper
  • 125 g Butter, softened
  • 100 g Crème fraîche
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard, medium spicy
  • 30 g Chives, finely chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove, minced
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Set aside 20 pecan halves, break the remaining nuts into coarse pieces with your hands.
  2. Mix the flour, baking powder, coconut sugar, salt and pepper in a mixing bowl. Add the butter, crème fraîche, mustard, chives and pecans. Peel and mince the garlic. Mix everything first with a hand mixer fitted with the dough hooks, then knead briefly with your hands to form a smooth dough.
  3. Divide the dough into 20 portions and shape each into a ball, place on a baking tray and press 1 pecan half into each. Bake in the center of hot oven for 20 minutes until golden brown, flattening the cookies halfway through baking with a spatula or the back of a tablespoon.
  4. Remove from the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack. Store in an air-tight container for up to 4 days.

No sé qué sabor tendrán, saladas no creo, pero muy dulces tampoco, motivo por el cual me gustaría probarlas. Y te han quedado súper bonitas.

The mustard, garlic and chives make these more of an appetizer or snack than a dessert, right? They sound really good~

Bet those are good, if I could only have butter.

DEZMOND 7/6/24 15:45

The cookies look like a charm

Omg, this sounds terrific! I love to bake savoury shortbread-like cookies with cheese, but in never occurred to me to add chives. And I just used up all the chives from our garden today :) Well, saving the recipe for later!

Citu 8/6/24 03:14

Gracias por la receta. Te mando un beso.

Can't wait to share these at my next party. Karen (Back Road Journal)

I will definitely be trying these. Would be great for a neighborhood sip and chat evening.

sherry 9/6/24 02:03

what an amazing idea to have a savoury biscuit. I love chives and garlic and mustard and pecans - so = yum!

Happy Retiree's Kitchen 9/6/24 04:33

These look perfect Angie, I love a savoury biscuit. Sour cream is cheaper here than creme fraiche so do you think sour cream could be used instead. I will be freezing some.

Marcelle 9/6/24 16:50

Angie, this cookies are so lovely and I bet the flavors are a real treat. I already know I will be having more than one! :)
