Praline Cookies Recipe

These cookies are both crisp and chewy. They can be frozen after they're iced for real convenience. With two small children, that's a great way to have my baking done ahead of time for holidays or special occasions. The only problem is hiding them so my husband can't find them! —Melody Sroufe, Wichita, Kansas
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. + chilling Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling YIELD:24 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1-1/2 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  • ICING:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt; add to creamed mixture. Mix well. Cover and chill until dough is easy to handle, about 1 hour.
  • 2. Form into 1-in. balls; place 2-in. apart on greased baking sheets. Flatten cookies slightly with fingers; sprinkle each with 1 teaspoon pecans. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
  • 3. Meanwhile, for icing, combine the brown sugar and cream in a saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture comes to a boil, stirring constantly. Remove from the heat; blend in confectioners' sugar until smooth. Drizzle over cookies. Yield: 4 dozen.

"Everyone loved these and they were easy to make. I would probably halve the icing recipe though, because I ended up with almost half of it left over. I will be making these again. Delicious!"
