Praline Cookies


This is a recipe that came with my small Pampered Chef scoop. These little cookies have just the right amount of sweetness. I included these in my annual goodie package to my Dad's office in San Antonio. He said they fought over them last year, so I doubled up on the recipe this year!





Praline Cookies
(Printable Recipe)


1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375.

Microwave butter on HIGH for 40-45 seconds or until butter is melted. Add sugars, eggs, flour and vanilla. Mix well. Add pecans; mix well. Using small scoop, drop dough 2-inches apart onto cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes - until edges are slightly brown. Cool 2 minutes and remove to cooling rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

  3. Unfortunately, I had some problems with this recipe. The dough was really crumbly and the cookies were pretty tough on the outside but nearly raw on the inside. Bummer.

  5. I made these, and several people told me they were the best cookies I have ever made. Since I have been baking for 30+ years, that's quite a compliment!

  7. Would a measured Tbs. count as a small scoop? I'm not sure what to use as a small scoop.

  8. Tricia - a small scoop is about a tablespoon

  9. I just finished making these. After tasting them, I decided that something was missing. Have you ever considered adding a bit of salt to the recipe? I think that would help it out a lot.

  10. Ranee - I haven't. I think they are fantastic just the way they are, but feel free to change it up to fit your taste.

    1. So glad he liked them! I am not a huge sweets fan either. These cookies have just enough sweetness. I love them too!

  12. Does it matter if you use light or dark brown sugar?

    1. It doesn't matter - I always use light because that is what I have in the pantry.

    1. I don't see why not! I think almonds might be good.

  14. Just got the first pan out of the oven. I didn't have pecans today so used walnuts.....if they're any better with pecans I'll never be able to share them as the first plate is almost gone already. These will definitely be added to my Christmas cookie baking list. They will love them!!

  15. Some may scoff and others will squeal, but I took some creative license here. After about 6 minutes in the oven I added a chunk of cooked bacon in the center and allowed to finish baking. Nom nom BACON!
