Pecan Pie Cookies


Recently I bought some pecans and was going though my ever ending recipes and came up with making these again.  I have had this recipe for quite a long time now so it was great to pull it out again and make them.  They are an easy cookie to make and taste great along with coffee or a glass of milk!

This cookie reminds me of a mini pecan pie.  The cookie part has a buttery, shortbread taste and the pecan filling on top is just the right match!

I have included the recipe below if you wish to try.  I don't think you will be disappointed in these.  In fact, at my home, they disappear quickly.




1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

3/4 cup butter, softened

1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and baking powder in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Make indentation in each cookie with thumb; rotate thumb to hollow out slightly.

Combine all filling ingredients in small bowl; fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon filling. Bake for 8 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets



  1. I have never seen a recipe quite like this- I am saving it to try for the Holidays- They are PECAN NUTS (no pun intended) around here- xo Diana

  2. Kelly- I have always meant to ask you- where did you live before you moved to the coast? I often dream about doing just that-if it weren't for all my grandkids here I would be long gone from the frozen tundra here- xo Diana

  3. Boy, this looks good! My family will really go for them!

  4. My sister makes these a lot and they are a big hit. I never had the recipe so thank you!!


  5. OMG!!!!!! I will definitely be trying these for the holidays. I LOVE pecan pie! xo

  6. These look delicious, as well as pretty! I like the fact that there isn't too much butter to them, keeping the calorie count down. My husband loves pecans, so will give these a try! Thanks for sharing!
