  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and 1 cup brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the egg and stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; stir into the sugar mixture. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets. Make a depression in the center using the cap from the vanilla or the end of a wooden spoon. Mix together the pecans, sour cream and 1/4 cup brown sugar; fill each depression with the mixture.
  3. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown. Cool for a few minutes on the cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

This was a very good cookie, not too sweet. Make sure you make the balls 1" because these cookies do puff up and filling will just coat the top if indentions are not deep enough. I will make this cookie again.

Great cookies! The Dough was very sticky and a little difficult to work with but I wet my hands somewhat and it made all the difference, will definately make these again!

Excellent cookie especially for pecan pie lovers... the soft dough is not too sweet and the gooey pecan center is tastey. I'll make more of the filling next time, though. I guess I'm too generous with the goo. As a holiday twist, you could color the dough to make little wreaths or you could sprinkle colored sugars on the dough as you are rolling the balls. I used red and green sugar (not enough to cover, just enough to speckle the dough.) The cookies looked quite festive but were not sweetened too much. It was a great addition to a wonderful cookie.
