Super Easy Pecan Cookies {Tablespoon Tuesdays}

I’m officially obsessed with looking at cloth diapers online.

butter-pecan cookies

No, no. You’re right. This is a food blog, and there is a photo of buttery pecan cookies right below the word DIAPER. I’ll never learn.

Yesterday on the books of the face variety, I asked you guys about your thoughts on cloth diapering with twins. Like, using a service. Having someone else do the laundry, man. And after careful consideration, I’ve come to a conclusion. One I feel solid about. One I’m going to stand by until kingdom come. One that I can raise my head high and say, “YES! I AM WOMAN. I HAVE TWINS. AND THEY ARE UNBELIEVABLY POOPY.”

…I’m gonna make Aaron do the diapers.

Bring it in, girls. Fist bump central. I mean right?

JK JK JK. We’ve decided to do a six-month trial run with a service. No harm in trying it out, right? If after six months I discover my sanity brutally stomped on in a drainage gutter, we’ll end it. I’ll save the planet in another way.

But of course now that we’ve decided to try it out, I’m dyyyyyyyyyyiiiinnnnnng over the cloth diaper cuteness. ARE you kidding me, these things are ridiculous for the eyes. If you feel a rumble under your feet at any point today, that’s just the sound of my registries blowing up with booty binding.

You know what I think? I think we should eat some Super Easy Buttery Pecan Cookies to celebrate this QUOTE UNQUOTE booty call, don’t you? BAH HAAA.

And I promise not to talk about booties and diapers tomorrow. I promise to try not to. I promise to think about trying not to. I promise to maybe think about the possibility of probably not trying to.

    Did you find cloth diapers to be the world's most confusing concept at first? Like what are these insert things and how the heck do you wrap the diapers? Maybe I'm slow to catch onto these things ;) I am having a baby in the next few weeks (AHHH!) but if I were expecting twins, I'd be all over the diaper service! Good choice!

    Cloth diapers are addicting! We are going to use cloth on our 2nd (due anytime now!). I have so many already but I mean I want more! So many cute things everywhere! Also - yeah for cookies!

    I've been pondering the possible necessities of cloth diapering myself and still haven't made up my mind. I'm very interested in seeing how it goes for you! And on another note, a non-butt-covering one, these cookies look fab. Just the thing to take your mind off cloth diapering :)

    Only *you can get away with typing the words "diapers" "poopy" and "cookies" all in the same post! Love it.

    I am so scared of cloth diapering...maybe I'll train the baby to wash diapers himself. Or maybe I'll look into a service this time around and just eat a lot of cookies while someone else washes my baby's poo.

    Cloth diapers are SO adorable! But all that poop. Gah! On that note, these cookies look glorious! :)

    Making Aaron do the diapers is brilliant. Taking note :-)

    I cloth diapered for about 18 mos. I collected diapers worse than I collect cute dishes from Anthro.'s a whole new world seeing what fluffy cuteness you can put on your baby's bum. And yes, it's a diaper, it doesn't need to be cute - it just needs to work, but cute gets bonus points. You will find your flow. I did not use a service. I did all my own diapers b/c I didn't have the budget to have them sent out or to hire anyone and it worked out :) Gorgeous cookies too!

    God, you are so brave! I wanted to do it but totally chickened out at the last minute - I can't wait to hear how it goes! Um, also- great looking cookies :)

    Butter Pecan Cookies rock my world. Cloth diapers on the other hand? Uh, I only made it a week. I caved. I couldn't do it. I was weak. Forgive me. :)

    Um, yes please! I grew up in a small town in GA and we use to pick up pecans and shell, bag, and freeze them to make pies and cookies! :)

    I want to try to bake these cookies but I can`t find the right recipe. Every time I am trying to make them, something goes wrong. Could you please share your recipe for me to be able to bake these tasty cookies?
