I’m all about a dense, chewy, fudgy cookie. And these cookies are soft and fluffy. I’m all about chocolate. And these are, well, not. And I totally wish I could deliver a batch of these to all of you personally so that you could understand just how good they are. But I can’t. You’re just going to have to make a batch for yourselves and thank me later.
Yes, they’re soft and fluffy instead of dense and chewy like most of the cookies I make. But they’re filled with brown sugar. And they’re topped with brown sugar frosting. And pecans. Pee-cans. Sorry, I’m Canadian. But I tried to channel my secret inner Southern girl when I made you these praline-inspired cookies. Now, when you make these, there is just the perfect amount of frosting for the cookies plus about 3 tablespoons. Feel free to spoon those right into your mouth.
Oh my word. Brown sugar frosting is my new favorite thing. It’s so easy because the sugar and milk are melted together, and everything else can just be stirred in. But then, with 5-10 minutes it’s firmed right up so you can stack them right away. And if your frosting gets a little cool and difficult to spread, just pop it in the microwave for 10 seconds and you’re good to go (I actually had to do this twice while making these). Christmas or not, you need these in your life.
