    Salsareina's Note:

    I won a holiday cookie contest 20 years ago with this recipe given to me by a good friend. It has been a family favorite and a regular in our Christmas cookie line-up. The dough has a soft texture and is not too sweet.

    Cookie dough



    1. 1
      For the dough, cream the butter, sugar, corn syrup and egg yolks. Stir in flour gradually to mix. Chill 1 hour.
    2. 2
      For the filling, combine confectioners' sugar, butter and and dark corn syrup in a saucepan. Cook over medium high heat until mixture comes to a full boil. Cook for two minutes. Remove from heat. Stir in pecans. Set aside until cool enough to handle. Mixture thickens when cool.
    3. 3
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Make walnut size balls of dough and place on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Brush with reserved egg white. Bake for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and press 1/2 teaspoon of pecan filling into center of each partially baked cookie. This is easiest to do using your fingers. Return to oven for 5 more minutes. Cool for 3 minutes on baking sheet then remove to cooling rack.

      A friend of mine made these cookies for our Christmas cookie/candy exchange. They are my new favorite cookie and I plan to make a batch or two for every holiday!

      I made these cookies for the holidays, and they INSTANTLY became a tradition! The dough is perfect, and, as stated, not too sweet. You cannot eat just one! Thank you so much!
