I’m obsessed with these cookies.

INGREDIENTS

3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
Coarse-flake sea salt for sprinkling (preferably fleur de sel)

DIRECTIONS

Preheat the oven to 325˚F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a saucepan over medium heat, brown the butter. Pour the browned butter into a medium bowl and stir in the brown sugar and vanilla. In a small bowl, whisk the flour and baking powder together. With a spoon, stir the flour mixture into the butter mixture until combined. Stir in the toasted pecans. Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto the cookie sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt and lightly press it into the top of cookies. Bake for 15 minutes.
