Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oven to 375° F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or aluminum foil.

  • With an electric mixer on medium-high, beat the butter, brown and granulated sugars, corn syrup, and vanilla for 3 minutes. Add the egg and beat until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, and baking soda. Reduce mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture to the egg mixture.

  • Form the dough into tablespoon-size balls. Spread the pine nuts on a plate. Roll each ball in the pine nuts, pressing so the nuts adhere. Place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Bake until lightly browned at the edges, 12 to 15 minutes. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Transfer the cookies to wire racks. Cool completely.
