Pecan Praline Cookies

Diana Rattray
These little cookies are packed with chopped pecans. Yummy buttery pecan cookes, made so simply with butter, brown sugar, and pecans, along with flour and vanilla.


  • 8 ounces butter
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups finely chopped pecans
  • sifted confectioners' sugar, optional


Cream butter and brown sugar; stir in vanilla. Gradually work in flour. Mixture will be crumbly. Add chopped pecans and work into dough. Pinch off dough and roll in hands to form balls about 1 inch in diameter. Place on greased baking sheets; bake pecan cookies at 325° for 15 to 20 minutes, until firm and browned on bottoms. If desired, roll pecan cookies in confectioners' sugar while still warm.
Makes about 4 dozen pecan praline cookies.

just okay.., Member solodeigloria1

I tried this recipe for something new. Don't think I did anything wrong, but I found the cookies to taste a little too ""powdery"" or ""floury"" for my liking. They also didn't flatten down as much as in the picture, but remained more in the ball shape, so I don't know if that has anything to do with the problem. I thought maybe I had missed an ingredient, but I got them all... This probably isn't going to be a repeat recipe for me.
