Costco Kirkland Signature Maple Pecan Cookies Review

My Costco bakery seems to rotate in a new kind of cookies alongside the classic Kirkland Signature Chocolate Lover’s Cookie Pack every now and then. The most recent example is these Kirkland Signature Maple Pecan Cookies. My general opinion on Costco cookies is that they’re pretty awesome for a grocery store bakery. With that being my expectation, these Maple Pecan cookies were a bit of a surprise. Read on to find out why!

I love cookies and I’ve tried pretty much all the cookies the bakery has ever carried! Like the Kirkland Signature Raspberry Crumble Cookies, Kirkland Signature Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Cookies, Kirkland Signature Confetti Cookies, Kirkland Signature Chocolate Chip Cookies, Kirkland Signature Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies and the Kirkland Signature S’more Cookies.

Location in Store

These are located in the bakery section at Costco, the item number is 1783287.

Taste

The first thing I noticed when I opened the box is how amazing the cookies smelled! They have a great maple aroma.

The cookies are also really delicious. They’re soft and chewy – similar to other Costco cookies. I noticed an interesting sugary texture and sweetness along with the maple flavor. When I looked on the ingredients list, I realized the maple in the cookies is actually in maple-flavored fudge! I really liked it. It makes the cookies more soft and melty.

Ready to try!

There are a decent number of small pecan chunks in the cookies, and while they take a back seat to the maple, they add a bit of texture and flavor.

I love these cookies! The maple flavor and soft, fudgy texture are perfect. They might be my favorite Costco cookie, and that’s saying a lot.

Cost

The cookies cost $11.99 Canadian, which isn’t bad for 24 medium- to large-sized cookies! I know of a few bakeries that sell cookies of a similar size for $3 to $4 each.

The cookies freeze really well if you’re not going to enjoy them right away.

Convenience

The cookies have a best-before date that’s five days from when they were packaged. I recommend freezing some/all of them if you’re not going to eat them right away. Freezing them has no impact on the flavor or texture and I find the cookies get stale pretty quickly sitting out after opening them.

So delicious!

These cookies are great to a potluck, any kind of party or event or just have at home. I think they’d also be awesome to bring to work and share with colleagues!

Nutrition

Calories

One cookie contains 220 calories, 11 grams of fat, 30 grams of carbohydrates, one gram of fiber, 17 grams of sugar, three grams of protein and 160 milligrams of sodium. The calories, carbs, fat and sugar are obviously high but that’s to be expected in cookies!

Ingredients

The ingredients are typical for a store-made cookie. There are lots of unhealthy ingredients like sugar, palm oil, corn syrup and artificial flavours. Most cookies tend to have a lot of sugar in them and not the healthiest ingredients though!

The cookies contain wheat, milk, egg, pecans and sulfites and may contain soy, other tree nuts, peanuts, sesame, barley, rye, oats and nut shell fragments,

  1. I think these cookies are Quebec Maple Syrup growers “world” standard. Other than that, they’re terrible.

  2. Not really sure what you mean by a “worldwide” standard (that’s a pretty broad category) but if you read the ingredients list, all the various sugars are high on the list. Each large cookie has 17g of sugar which equates to approximately 4 tsp per cookie.
    Hope this helps 😁. Happy Canada Day 🇨🇦 on July 1st!

  3. Can someone pls tell me if the cookies are of “American sweet” or European or worldwide standard?
    I really want to try it; but I don’t want it to ends up in the compost, just like the apple pie.
    Thanks in a million.
