Pecan Fondants - Pecan Cookies
Pecan Fondants are delicious little cookies, perfect to make with not just pecans, but also walnuts or pistachio!
+ 60g brown sugar for coating
Combine the butter, sugar and vanilla then mix at low speed for 2 minutes.
Add the dry ingredients: flour, cornstarch and salt and mix just until incorporated.
Incorporate the pecan nuts in the end then split the dough in half.
Form 2 logs from each piece of dough.
Wrap up in foil and refrigerate for 4-6 hours.
Remove from the fridge then coat the logs evenly in brown sugar.
Cut each log into slices – about 0.5cm thickness.
Arrange the slices on a baking tray.
Freeze for 15 minutes then bake in the preheated oven at 170C for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Keep in an airtight container.
You can replace the pecans with walnuts, peanuts or pistachio and you will get a whole new set of cookies with a different flavor.
