1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

¾ cup butter, softened

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder


Filling Ingredients

1 cup finely chopped pecans

½ cup firmly packed brown sugar

Heat oven to 350°.  Combine all cookie ingredients except flour and baking powder in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking powder. Beat until well mixed.

Shape dough into 1 ¼ inch balls. Place 2 inches apart onto parchment lined cookie sheets. Make an indentation in each cookie with your thumb or the back of a wooden spoon, rotate it to hollow the cookie out slightly.

Combine all filling ingredients in a small bowl; fill each cookie with 1 rounded teaspoon filling. Bake for 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet.
