Nothing is more rewarding than making homemade cookies. These boast a rich buttery taste studded with crunchy chopped pecans...that'll literally melt in your mouth.

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (1 ½ sticks) butter, softened
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Place 1/4 cup sugar in a shallow pan and set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients. With your hands, mix until thoroughly blended; cover and refrigerate dough for 30 minutes.
  4. Form dough into 1-1/4-inch balls, then roll in the reserved sugar, covering completely. Place 1-inch apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until set but not brown. Let stand for 1 minute. Remove to a wire rack to cool.



It's best not to substitute margarine for butter in this recipe.

I think there's an ingredient missing. I tried these cookies and all I got were crumbs. They all fell apart. I love pecans, I would like to try these again what was missing? eggs?
