I hope everyone had a good Labor Day holiday. I spent my three day weekend going home to visit my parents in the Bay Area. Usually, when I go home, I bake my parents some desserts that I think they might like.
I didn’t have much time this week for baking and I ran out of eggs. So one of the things I decided to make were pecan pralines. These cookies look cute and are easy to make and don’t require any eggs.
I was able to whip these up the morning before my flight.
The cookies have a mildly sweet, buttery crunch to them. I love how the pecan in the middle of the cookie looks.
- 1 cup unsalted butter softened
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup pecan halves

Form dough into 1-inch diameter round balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheets. Place a pecan half in the center of each ball. Press down lightly. Bake 13-15 minutes or until golden brown.
