Makes 36 cookies| Hands-On Time: | Total Time:

Ingredients

  • 4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1/3 cup very finely chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 350° F. In a small saucepan, combine the butter, sugars, and cream and bring to a boil. Boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves, about 1 minute. Remove from heat and stir in the pecans, flour, and salt.
  2. Drop level teaspoons of the warm batter, spacing them 4 inches apart, onto parchment-lined baking sheets. If the batter cools between batches and can’t be scooped, rewarm it slightly.
  3. Bake, rotating the sheets halfway through, until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on the sheets until firm, about 5 minutes. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

    Cranberries

    High in vitamin C, these hard, tart berries are grown in bogs in colder regions of North America and Europe. They’re almost always eaten cooked, as in the classic Thanksgiving relish.
