Praline Christmas Cookies

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!

Praline Cookies

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!
