Directions

  1. Beat the brown sugar and butter with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until completely incorporated. Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a separate bowl, then stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until just incorporated. Fold in the pecans mixing just enough to evenly combine.
  2. Roll the dough into a log, and wrap in wax paper. Chill the dough in the refrigerator for at least one hour.
  3. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Slice the dough and arrange the cookies on a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges are golden, about 12 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

I was tickled to find this recipe here. This is one is almost like the one that I have been using for years. I liked your version as it uses a bit less sugar. I have even frozen the dough for up to 3 weeks before baking and they turned out just great. They store well also.

If was not what I expected. It does make a good shortbread cookie.

Awesome cookies. Dough was pretty crumbly. Had to really work to keep it together, but it was worth it. Family loved them. Thanks!

I couldn't keep my dough together at all, but that did not keep me from pressing it down on to the cookie sheet and baking it anyway! Even after I baked them they were really crumbly. I still give the recipe 5 stars because they are so good

I have made this two years in a row for my Christmas baskets. They have an excellent taste but the dough is very crumbly. I will be making more in a week or so and will add the extra egg as someone else recommended.

This little cookie is not too sweet and would be enjoyed by both children and adults alike. I made half the recipe using a whole egg, therefore I didn’t have the crumbling problem mentioned by other reviewers. I would recommend adding another egg if you run into that problem because the cookies I made were easy to form, baked up perfectly, and had wonderful flavor. These cookies are perfect for a cookie tray for the holidays or a tea. Thanks for sharing!
