When my very close friend Sophie baked these cookies for us for the first time, it became my son's favorite. I took the recipe and tried but it is not the same. She is the professional:)
Here is her recipe;

  • 300 gr all purpose flour ( ~2+2/3 cup )
  • 1/2 cup of pecan meal
  • 150 gr sugar ( ~3/4 cup )
  • 150 gr melted butter ( ~11 tbsp )
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp of baking powder
Whisk sugar, egg, baking soda in a large mixing bowl. Add butter and whisk. Add flour, baking powder, and pecan meal and knead. Cover with plastic wrap and rest the dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Take it out and knead again. Rest for another 30 minutes.Take small parts ( about the size of an egg ) from the dough and give them the shape of small balls and press them gently while they are still between your palms. Place them on a greased baking tray.Place a half pecan on top of each cookies and gently push. Preheat the oven 350 F. Bake the cookies for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
