Pecan Praline Cookies

This post was originally shared last week at Kate's blog The Small Things but I thought I would also share it here for those who might want to see it too. You can read the original post here, if you'd like.

This cookie recipe is a great one for Fall and the Thanksgiving Holiday. These are super simple to make, so let's get started!


Here's what you'll need:

1 cup chopped pecans (set half aside right away for the glaze)
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter softened
1 egg

For the glaze you'll need:

1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup half and half
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 3/4 cups powered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 10-12 minutes. 

In a small bowl mix together flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl beat together brown sugar and butter on medium speed till combined. Add egg, beat till fluffy. Add flour mixture to butter mixture. Beat until combined, stir in 1/2 cup pecans. 

Drop by rounded teaspoon full onto cookie sheet. (I used my measuring teaspoon for this.) And Bake.

After cookies have baked and cooled you can prepare the glaze and drizzle it onto your cookies. 

For glaze; In a small sauce pan combine half and half and brown sugar together and bring to a boil. Stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in powered sugar. 

Sprinkle remaining pecans over cookies and drizzle with glaze. 

Enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
