Pecan Pie Cookies

Pecan Pie lovers, this cookie is for you! Everything you love about your favorite pie, made in 25 minutes, cookie-style. These must-try morsels are perfect for autumn, holiday parties and everything in between.

Ingredients

1
roll (16.5 oz.) Pillsbury™ refrigerated sugar cookie dough, at room temperature
1/2
cup flour
1/3
cup Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy coconut pecan frosting
1/4
cup chopped pecans
2
tablespoons brown sugar
24
pecan halves
1/3
cup chocolate chips
1
teaspoon coconut oil

Directions

  • 1 Preheat oven to 350°F. Add cookie dough to a large bowl and mix in just enough flour so that the dough is no longer sticky. (Start with 1-2 tablespoons and increase to the entire 1/2 cup only if needed.) Roll dough into 24 balls and divide between two parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down with your thumb to form an indent in the center of each cookie.
  • 2 In a small bowl, stir together frosting, chopped pecans and brown sugar. Spoon into the center of cookies.
  • 3 Bake first batch of 12 cookies for 8-14 minutes, or just until the edges of the cookies turn light golden brown, checking for doneness after 8 minutes. Immediately after removing from oven, press a pecan half into the center of each cookie. Repeat with second batch of 12 cookies. Allow to cool to room temperature.
  • 4 In a small bowl, melt together chocolate chips and coconut oil. Drizzle over cookies. Allow chocolate to harden before serving.

Start by combining room temperature (the room temperature part is very important) Pillsbury sugar cookie dough with a little flour, just to make sure the dough isn’t at all sticky so our little thumbprint cookies cook up into pretty morsels. This recipe calls for up to 1/2 cup, but start with 1-2 tablespoons and see how it goes.

Roll into 24 little cookie balls and divide evenly between two baking sheets. (We’ll bake these 12 at a time so the oven doesn’t get crowded.)
