PECAN PIE COOKIES


You can't always tell by a picture if the cookie is as good as it looks.
My daughter gave me this recipe after she had eaten and loved the cookie.
Thanks to her friend Sue who brought them to a gathering and
was willing to share the recipe.


Mix dough and roll into balls.  Make an indention in
each center and fill with a nutty mixture.


When I serve these to company, I will put a small dollop of
whipped cream on top!

PECAN PIE COOKIES

3/4 cup chopped pecans
½ cup brown sugar, packed

1 cup brown sugar, packed

1 tsp. vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt

greased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
