Need an easy peasy good cookie for your cookie jar for Christmas? While scouring the blogs I follow, I came across this one and since my kiddos love a pecan pie, I thought I would give it a “bake and taste try.” And let me tell you for the ones who have tasted tried these, they say it is definitely a keeper! These are easy to make and easy to eat! Just watch out as they are addictive!
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsps. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
powdered sugar (about 1/4 cup, maybe a little less)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Melt butter in microwave for about 30-40 seconds or until melted. Add to the sugar, brown sugar egg, and vanilla and mix well. Add pecans, and mix well. using a small cookie scoop, drop dough 2 inches apart on cookie sheet (I did grease mine first). Bake 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly brown. Cool on the pan for 2 minutes and remove to a cooling rack. Once completely cool, sprinkle with powdered sugar.
Here’s mine on the cooling rack and all dusted! They don’t last long, I promise! I will be making a double batch for Christmas! Have a great week!
