Pecan Pie Cookies

I forget whom I promised to send this recipe to this weekend, so now everyone can enjoy =P. Any time vanilla or dark brown sugar is listed here, I recommend adding extra.

 

Pecan Pie Cookies

COOKIE INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder

FILLING INGREDIENTS

  • 1 cup chopped (small) pecans
  • 1/2 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla

 

Procedure:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. To make cookie dough, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla; mix. Add flour and baking powder. Beat until well-mixed.
  3. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. With your thumb, make an indentation in the center of each cookie (rotate your thumb to hollow it out slightly).
  4. Combine all the filling ingredients in a small bowl. Fill each cookie’s indentation with filling.
  5. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned.
