Brown Sugar Pecan Rounds

Mar 27, 2013 | Posted in: , , , | 0 Comments

Today’s gloomy weather made me want to curl up on my couch with a hot cup of coffee and a little something sweet. I wasn’t in the mood for chocolate (shocking, I know). I needed butter. And brown sugar. And maybe pecans. Comfort food, in other words. I happened to come across a recipe from my Great Aunt May May called Brown Sugar Pecan Rounds. Let me tell you, these sugary, buttery cookies (are rounds cookies?) did the trick.

Brown Sugar Pecan Rounds

Recipe by Emily’s Great Aunt May May


  • 1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/4 c. brown sugar, packed
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/4 cup Gold Medal flour
  • 1/4 t. baking soda
  • 1/8 t. salt
  • 1/2 c. chopped pecans


Heat oven to 350 F. Mix butter, brown sugar, and egg in large mixing bowl. Stir in remaining ingredients. Drop dough by teaspoons about two inches apart onto ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes. Makes 3 dozen.
