Texas Pecan Praline Cookies

Texas Pecan Praline Cookies at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
There are pecan orchard's and pecan trees all around us and in the fall of the year when pecan harvest is going on there are plenty of pecans for everyone including the little squirrels. A favorite southern treat is a praline, so for this recipe I am combining a nice spice cookie with a praline topping making this a very special cookie! This cookie is crisp on the outside and soft on the inside topped with fresh pecans from East Texas, just delicious!

  10. The ingredients calls for confectioner sugar in the topping but the directions says brown sugar. I am thinking it should be brown sugar. These look wonderful.

  11. Now I see when the confectioner sugar is added. The brown sugar isn't listed in the ingredients. Doesn't take much to confuse me. Haha!!
