Pecan Pie Cookies

I got this recipe from the blog via Pinterest. As someone who is not a huge pecan fan, I have to admit that these were really yummy.


  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups (256 g) flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


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

Preheat the oven to 350.  Combine all cookie ingredients except the flour and baking powder and beat on medium speed until creamy.  Add in the flour and baking powder and beat on low until fully incorporated.  In a separate bowl, combine the filling ingredients and mix well. Roll or use a cookie scoop to get 1 1/4″ balls and place on an ungreased or parchment lined baking sheet.  Use your thumb to make a depression in the cookies, then fill with the pecan filling. They will spread a tad, so don’t make the hole for the filling too deep.  Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on your oven.  I baked mine for 10 and they were perfect.  Try not to eat them all in one sitting.  Makes 4 dozen.
