High Vibe Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies

Its not quite Fall weather here in Texas, but I'm definitely still feeling all the Fall flavors!! I was craving some cookies that resembled being warm & toasty but still had some Texas flare, when I stumbled upon a recipe for Brown Butter Bourbon Pecan Chocolate Chip Cookies (say that five times in a row).

I like to keep my desserts Guilt-Free so I modified the recipe to be Refined Sugar-Free, Egg Free, & Gluten Free! Let me just say, I'm really impressed with how these turned out. They're so nice and moist, with just the right amount of sweetness without being a toothache, you get a nice hint of Bourbon at the end, and the Chocolate/Pecan combo really rounds it all out to make this the perfect Fall in Texas Cookie.
