  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup chopped pecans

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla until well combined.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.
  5. Slowly add to the butter mixture and mix on low until just combined. Stir in the pecans.
  6. The dough will be somewhat sticky, but roll it into 24 small balls and roll each ball in sugar.
