Caramel Glaze Pecan Cookies
I messed up on one thing...I threw the pecans into the dough before I realized I was suppose to roll the dough balls IN the pecans (yes I usually read the directions through first, GEEZZZ) needless to say, I was not gonna pick them all out...so opted to roll balls in raw sugar.
1/2 cbutter, softened
1 1/2 cbrown sugar
1 1/2 cflour
1 1/2 tspbaking powder
1 1/4 croasted pecans, chopped
1/2 cbrown sugar
1/4 cheavy whipping cream
1/2 cpowdered sugar
How to Make Caramel Glaze Pecan Cookies
- In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.
- Shape dough into 1 1/2" balls; roll in pecans, place 2" apart onto ungreased cookie sheets; flatten slightly.
Or do as I did, add pecans to dough, roll into 1 1/2" balls and roll in raw sugar then bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.
- In a small saucepan, bring brown sugar and cream to a boil. Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar. Immediately drizzle over the cookies.
- When set, store in an airtight container. Yeild about 3 1/2 dozen.
