Praline Cookies

Praline Cookies

This has got to be one of the easiest cookie recipes out there and one that I had not previously tried. Once they cooled completely and the powdered sugar was added to the tops, I transferred them to a Ziploc bag and let them hang out on the counter. I actually liked them best about two days after.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, slightly beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
  • powdered sugar for dusting


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

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