This recipe comes from an Aspen friend of Ja and Moogie’s. They are decadent but delicious. I usually make them around Christmas.
Blend in Cuisinart fitted with a steel blade:
2 c brown sugar
½ stick butter
½ c flour
1 t vanilla
Then add, stirring in by hand:
2 c medium chopped pecans
Chill for one hour or overnight.
Rolldough into 1” balls [I make them about half that size as they are easier to remove from the pan after cooking - see below]
Put balls on a greased and floured cookie sheet.
Cook at 375 degrees F [Moogie notes 350 degree preference] 7-8 minutes.
Cool 2-3 minutes in pan before removing. [These can be a bit difficult to remove in one piece. I find it helps a bit if I put the pan outside in the winter cold (or in the freezer) for about a minute and then remove.]
