Love pecan pie? Try these tasy pecan pie COOKIES!

I told you how much I love this pecan pie recipe in this post, so now it's time for some pecan pie COOKIES!

This recipe makes about 24 larger cookies ro 36 smaller cookies.



  • 1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Beat butter and sugar on medium speed of an electric mixer until creamy. Add egg and vanilla and mix. Reduce speed to low and add flour and baking powder. Beat until well mixed. (I don't have a mixer, so I use my husband. That also works very well!)

Combine all the filling ingredients (pecans through vanilla) in a small bowl and mix well.

Shape dough into 1 1/4-inch balls (Use this size if you want larger cookies. I had to make over 100 cookies, so I started making smaller balls.) Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.

As you can see here, I used a teaspoon to create a small indentation in each cookie for the filling.

Fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon of filling.

Bake for 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool for 1 minute on baking sheet then remove to cool completely on a wire rack or sheet of aluminum foil.

YUM! They were SO good and I've been eating them all week!
