Yummy Jumbles

Jumbles Cookies 3
We have spent some time at home, so I decided to bake some jumbles cookies. Jumbles are a type of drop cookie that you can add all sorts of mix-ins into. If you look online, there are so many different recipes for jumbles cookies, but I used the one from the book, Field Guide to Cookies.

Jumbles are more of a cake-y cookie than a crispy cookie, and they are really easy to make. They aren't overly sweet, so they are really nice with tea.

Putting in the pecans.
Would you like to make jumbles, too? Here is the recipe I followed.

What you will need:
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 teaspoons orange zest
1 cup sour cream
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

First mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl and set this aside.

In another large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the eggs, vanilla, and orange zest and mix until everything is combined. Add half of the flour mixture to this and mix on low until everything is combined. Add the sour cream, and mix well. Finally, add the rest of the flour mixture and mix well. Fold the pecans into the dough.

Next, chill the dough for 30 minutes.

Prepare cookie sheets with parchment paper. Drop tablespoon-size amount of dough on to the cookie sheets, approximately 2 inches apart. Bake for 10-12 minutes, and let cool.

Enjoy some cookies!
