957 - Pecan Log Cookies #

(by Shirley McNevich)
1 2/3 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup softened butter
2/3 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed)
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. maple flavoring
3/4 cup halved pecans
Frosting: 1/2 cup Domino's dark brown sugar (packed), 1 TBSP Kayro dark corn syrup, 2 TBSP water, 1 cup Domino's powdered sugar

Into a bowl sift the flour, baking soda and salt--set aside. In a mixer add butter, 2/3 cup brown sugar--beat. Add egg--beat. Add vanilla and maple flavoring--beat. Add sifted ingredients that you set aside--beat. Flour your counter and roll dough into 2 or 3 dough logs (about 8 " long and 2" around). Wrap each log in Saran wrap (separately)--refrigerate them overnight. The next day remove the wrap from the dough logs and place one at a time on a cutting board. Cut into coin shaped pieces (about 1/8" wide). Repeat with all logs. Place cookies on to greased cookie sheets. Break each pecan half into a few smaller pieces and place on top of one cookie--press lightly into the cookie with the back of a spoon. Repeat with all cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. While cookies are baking make the frosting: in a saucepan add 1/2 cup brown sugar, Kayro, 1 TBSP water--turn heat to medium. Cook and stir until boiling. Once boiling remove from heat--add 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 TBSP water--stir with a spoon until smooth. It should be the consistency of a glaze--if too thick add a little more water. Drizzle each baked cookie with 1 tsp. of the frosting.
