Eat your heart out, Paula Deen

Tonight, I made Pecan Pie Cookies.
Here's the way that cookie crumbles:
Two sticks of butter
Yes...TWO.  And soft.
Half a cup of sugar.

Beat those suckers together.
Then, add dark corn syrup and 2 egg yolks.  Mix!
Stir in 2 cups of flour, cover, and chill for 1 hour.

Now for the "pecan pie" part.
In a saucepan, melt half a stick of butter.  Then add 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and 3 tablespoons of dark corn syrup.  Stir together and bring to a boil.

Take the mixture off the heat and throw in 3/4 cup of chopped pecans.
Chill for 30 minutes.
When it is done chilling, form small balls of the mixture and put them on a wax sheet.  I used a melon baller to do this.  Set aside.
Once the dough is finished chilling, form 1" balls and put on greased cookie sheet.

Bake these at 375 for 6 minutes.
Set one ball of the pecan mixture in the center of the dough balls.
Bake for 10 more minutes.

 Ta dah!

The recipe is from "Classic Southern Desserts" from the editors of Southern Living.
Let me know if you want the recipe.

While waiting for everything to chill, we ate homemade pizza for dinner.
Chicken, onion, mushroom pizza with cheddar and pepperjack cheese.

Seriously...easy to make yourself sick on...and I kind of did.
