My family and I saw a baseball game, and I had them try these cookies I made. It turned out great! The cookies were delicious and I decided to share the recipe with you. This came from one of my favorite cookbooks, Private Collection.
3 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
5 tablespoons flour
1 cup pecan halves
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Pinch of salt
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine butter and sugar. Mix in remaining ingredients well. Thoroughly grease a cookie sheet and coat with flour. Re-coat the cookie sheet before each baking. Drop batter by scant teaspoonfuls, 5 inches apart, including a nut half each time. Bake 8-10 minutes.
After cookies are baked, wait 1 minute, no longer, before removing them with a spatula to a rack to cool. If they stick, briefly rewarm cookie sheet.
