Brown Sugar Pecan Cookies with Caramel Glaze

These cookies are insanely amazing, my oldest son says that they are the best thing I have ever made.  I also loved these cookies, there are so many layers of flavors!  The caramel melts in your mouth just as you are getting your first hint of the soft but crunchy cookie.  These cookies were easy to throw together but taste like you spent forever in the kitchen making them.  I feel like next time we have people over this will definently be on the menu!
  • 1 cup soft butter
  • 1 ½ cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 ¼ cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup toasted pecan pieces
  •  
  • Brown Sugar Caramel Glaze
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup heavy cream
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and prepare two sheet pans with silpats or parchment paper.
  2. In the bowl of a standing mixer, cream together the butter and the brown sugar until fluffy. 
  3. Add the eggs and the vanilla and combine well.
  4. In a separate bowl combine the flour, baking soda and kosher salt and then add to the butter and sugar. 
  5. Add the pecans and mix in well.
  6. Scoop the cookies out onto the prepared sheet pans and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. 
  7. Let cool while you prepare the caramel.
  8. Put the powdered sugar in a heat proof bowl (like a pyrex).
  9. In a medium saucepan, combine the brown sugar and heavy cream and stir together and cook until simmering. 
  10. When boiling remove from the heat and add to the powdered sugar.  
  11. Whisk until smooth.
  12. Drizzle the glaze over the cookies and let cool until the cookies set up, about 30 minutes. 
  13. Serve immediately or stir in an airtight container. 
  14. These also freeze well.
