Pecan Pie Cookies Recipe

Pecan Pie Cookies Recipe – These were absolutely delicious! Just like mini pecan pies. My husband, kids and I could not enjoy them fast enough, will be making them for many years to come!

  • Prep Time: 20 mins
  • Cook Time: 10 mins
  • Total Time: 1 hour 30 mins
  • Yield: 24 cookies 1x
Scale

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 3 tablespoons light corn syrup
  • ¾ cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Step 1
Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a saucepan, and stir in the confectioners’ sugar and corn syrup until the sugar is dissolved. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring often, and stir in the pecans until well combined. Refrigerate the mixture for 30 minutes to chill.

Step 2
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Sift the flour and baking powder together in a bowl, and set aside.

Step 3
Beat brown sugar, 3/4 cup butter, egg, and vanilla extract in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is creamy, about 2 minutes. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until well mixed. Pinch off about 1 tablespoon of dough, and roll it into a ball. Press the dough into the bottom of an ungreased cupcake pan cup, and use your thumb to press the dough into a small piecrust shape, with 1/4-inch walls up the sides of the cupcake cup. Repeat with the rest of the dough. Fill each little crust with about 1 teaspoon of the prepared pecan filling.

Step 4
Bake in the preheated oven until the cookie shells are lightly browned, 10 to 13 minutes. Watch closely after 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool in the cupcake pans for 5 minutes before removing to wire rack to finish cooling.
