DIRECTIONS

  • For the dough, cream the butter, sugar, corn syrup and egg yolks. Stir in flour gradually to mix. Chill 1 hour.
  • 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.
  • 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.
