I love all things with "praline" in the title so Praline Cookies are going to be at the top of my list (or as Grace calls them, "Praline Maria Cookies" and you'd have to be a Sound of Music fan to get that one).
Come to think of it, these would be good as the base for a praline sundae--one of these cookies with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, drizzled caramel, honey, sprinkled with cinnamon and topped with whipped cream and a handful of crumbled praline. I'm going to have to write that one down, I think we have a winner.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
Melt butter and add sugars, egg, flour and vanilla. Mix well. Add pecans and drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 375 8-10 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes and dust with powdered sugar. Makes 2 1/2 dozen.
