Ingredients

1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup light corn syrup
2 egg yolks
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup pecan halves, toasted, finely chopped
3 tablespoons large grain sugar*
2 egg whites, slightly beaten

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, brown sugar and corn syrup in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add egg yolks and vanilla; continue beating until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; add flour, cocoa and baking soda. Beat until well mixed.

Combine chopped pecans and large grain sugar in small bowl. Shape dough into 1-inch balls with floured hands. Roll balls of dough in egg white, then in pecan mixture. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.

*Substitute 3 tablespoons granulated sugar.

Recipe Tip

For easy clean-up, shape all the balls for one cookie sheet’s worth of cookies, then use one hand to roll them in egg whites and your other hand to roll them in pecan mixture. Wash your hands and start again with the dough for the next sheet of cookies.

Recipe Tip
To toast pecans, spread into single layer on ungreased baking pan. Bake at 350°F., stirring occasionally, for 5 to 7 minutes or until lightly browned.
