packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
I just finished making a double batch of these wonderful cookies. I don't understand what other reviewers mean when they say this recipe doesn't make many cookies. I doubled everything and got 10 dozen cookies! Even half of that is 5 dozen! Here are the changes I made: I put a teaspoon of vanilla and about a cup of finely chopped pecans in the (doubled) batter, and after rolling into a one inch ball, dipped each one half way in a bowl containing Sugar In The Raw. It's light brown, has larger crystals then regular sugar, and very sparkly. Then I flattened each cookie with the bottom of a glass and put a nice whole pecan in the middle. They are absolutely delicious and they look wonderful! These are now on my list to make every year! Thanks!!.....12/15/09 an update: My last batch is in the oven so I have time for a quick update. This year I got 16 DOZEN when I doubled everything! I think it's because of 2 things: refrigerate the dough over night and use a melon baller to scoop out the portions. BTW, mine took 10 minutes per batch.
Very bland. Next time I will try adding vanilla
Adding vanilla is a must in this recipe. Refrigerating overnight makes a better dough. We tried different "add ons", i.e. chocolate chips, cinnamon, powdered sugar, etc. and found that turning this recipe into a Pecan Sandie by adding chopped pecans to the batter, leaving the balls whole for baking and rolling in powdered sugar after baking was the best. By leaving these in a ball, the cookie was thicker and more cake like, so it would just be your own personal preference to do this.
These cookies are moist and very pretty.
I used a whole cup of brown sugar since
I like my cookies sweet...good butter
pecan flavor...I also added about 1/2
tsp vanilla...recipe makes a smaller
batch than most...I'll make these again
This is a very good and easy recipe! I dipped my glass bottom in sugar instead of flour. It gives the cookie more of a sugar cookie taste. I also put a cherry on top of half the batch of cookies and on the other half I did the pecan. Definately a good recipe for the holidays and one to keep to use every year.
This is a wonderful, melt-in-your-mouth recipe. I printed it two days ago, and I have already used it TWICE! I would suggest putting sugar on the bottom of the glass as well, it gives the cookies even more flavor! FANTASTIC JOB!
Excellent recipe! The dough comes out very sticky, but do not add more flour! After refrigeration it comes out perfectly. I made that mistake once. Also added 1/2 tsp. vanilla which tasted lovely!
The recipe is quick and easy. They taste great and can be served for any occasion! Lacie
