Chocolate chip cookies are a family favorite in my home. We often make different variations, such as adding in some pecans. What makes it even better? Using Karo® Corn Syrup to make them the best, chewiest cookies.   

Chewy Chocolate Chip Pecan Cookies

At least once a week, after dinner, we like to stay in the kitchen and make a delicious dessert. It is a great way to bond with the family, making memories and making tasty treats. The kids really enjoy mixing ingredients and learning how to make new things.

We have numerous baking staples in our pantry, such as the leading corn syrup brand: Karo® Corn Syrup. With over 100 years of quality, the brand is trusted over multiple generations, as I remember my grandma baking with it every time we visited.

When I see that bottle, I am flooded with memories of being in the kitchen with family. Coming together to not only keep up with old traditions, but also to create new ones.

When you think of Karo® Corn Syrup, your mind may jump right to pecan pie on Thanksgiving evening. Aside from that, there are many other uses for the syrup. It is a staple to Southern cuisine, used in baked goods and as a topping for pancakes. Then there is adding it into your cookie recipes, resulting in cookies that are chewier on the outside and still soft in the middle.

When we make chocolate chip cookies, each time we like to put a little twist on them. The latest was adding in some pecans, perfect for autumn gatherings.
