At least around here, holiday baking is the best kind of baking. December is an excuse to try all the new cookie recipes I’ve been bookmarking, and the holidays make a perfect excuse for
pawning off excess on friends gifting baked goods.

Pecan Pie Sandwich Cookies: NYT Cooking
Honestly, these sound so good that I actually might not make any tweaks – high praise coming from someone practically incapable of following the recipe as written.
- 325 grams pecan halves
- 225 grams all-purpose flour
- 340 grams (3 sticks) unsalted butter
- 40 grams powdered sugar
- 295 grams brown sugar (the recipe calls for light brown – I will probably use dark)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 ea egg yolk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 80 grams dark corn syrup
- 1 tablespoon bourbon
