Rivulet Honey Pecan Cookies

Hey, y’all – Happy Day 18 of Blogmas! Blogmas is a series that I am bringing to the blog this year (and hopefully in subsequent years) that will provide y’all with a new recipe every day of December through Christmas. How fun is that? Today I’m excited to be sharing my recipe for Rivulet Pecan + Honey Cookies! These cookies aren’t going to last long, as you’ll be grabbing for “just one more”. I say: go for it! Thank you, Rivulet, for sponsoring this post.

About Rivulet Pecan Liqueur

Rivulet® Artisan Pecan Liqueur is handcrafted in Louisville, KY. Rivulet starts with a 2-year-old, barrel-aged brandy.  They then use a proprietary process to obtain the exquisite pecan essence, which I know y’all will love. It’s a deep flavor — one that is signature to the brand — and I can’t get enough of it. I also love that it’s local!

Rivulet Honey Pecan Cookies


3.5 c. flour

1 c. butter, unsalted

1.25 c. light brown sugar

.5 c. chopped pecans

3 tbsp. Rivulet Pecan Liqueur

2 eggs

8 tbsp. honey (support your local apiarist!)

2 tsp. vanilla

1 tsp. kosher salt

2 tsp. baking soda

Cinnamon, a pinch

Nutmeg, a pinch


  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. In a stand mixer, cream together brown sugar and margarine. After uniformly combined, add in eggs, honey, Rivulet Pecan Liqueur, and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
  3. Add in dry ingredients (minus pecans): flour, kosher salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well. Add in the pecans and mix until they have evenly dispersed.
  4. For best results, let dough chill until completely firm. You can use either the refrigerator or freezer, though I use the freezer.
  5. Make small balls out of the dough + bake for roughly 8-11 minutes (or until the cookies have reached your desired level of doneness).
  6. Enjoy!
