National Pecan Cookie Day Zac Young's Cranberry Pecan Oat Cookie Recipe

Happy National Pecan Cookie Day! We're celebrating the way we celebrate most every holiday: with boozy baked goods. Zac Young's Cranberry Pecan Oat Cookies with Bourbon Glaze might not be your traditional pecan cookie, but we think it's the pecan's toasty flavor + crunchy texture that's the key to these delicious chewy cookies. These would pair well with a tall glass of cold milk, or for that matter, our Cereal Milk Cocktail.

Don't worry if you were craving something a bit more traditional: we've got you covered there, too.
