Original recipe yields 5 dozen cookies



  1. Beat butter and sugar together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy. Beat egg yolks into butter mixture and gradually beat flour into butter mixture until dough forms. Beat in vanilla. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate dough for at least 2 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  3. Roll chilled dough into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart onto baking sheets. Flatten balls slightly and press an indentation into the center of each flattened ball. Fill each indentation with 1 pecan half.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until lightly browned, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack.

Mm-mmm! As this recipe's first reviewer I am eager to give it a two thumbs up! It looks as tho' it might have been around a good while, and what a shame it's been left unnoticed. These cookies are rich and buttery, tender and light. Just delicious, prepared in a heartbeat with just an unbelievable five ingredients. The ingredients and measurements for them are reliably accurate; the instructions simple, concise and well-written. The submitter suggests pecan halves or jam as options (I particularly like the jam idea) but I wanted something fall-ish so I pressed the top of the dough balls in fall sprinkles and then pressed a teeny mini peanut butter cup into each. This cookie is appropriate for any season or occasion and there are fun and limitless possibilities for decorations or toppers.



These truly are a Delicious cookie! I made these for my Christmas cookie trays this year instead of using pecans I used a Hershey kiss in the center! These will be made again!!



I was kind of nervous making something that had such few reviews but I am so happy that I did. These cookies were amazing...they were the perfect amount of sweet and just yummy all around. The family loved it. I used jam in the center and they turned out amazing!
