Pecan Pie Cookies Recipe

Happy Thanksgiving!  I love pecan pie but can’t possibly be eating large quantities…so enjoy a not-so-guilty treat. 🙂

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

Filling

1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Heat oven to 350°F.

Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and baking powder in bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add flour and baking powder; beat at low speed until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in each cookie with thumb; rotate thumb to hollow out slightly

Combine all filling ingredients in bowl; fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon filling. Bake 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to cooling rack.
