  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • cups finely chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Place the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat on high until fluffy, about 3–4 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and egg. Beat until incorporated, about 30 seconds.
  • Whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, salt, and baking powder in a medium sized bowl. With the mixer running on low speed, add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, ½ cup at a time. Continue to add the flour until it’s all incorporated.
  • Place the finely chopped pecans (I used my food processor to chop them) in a small bowl. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Roll the balls in the pecans and place the balls 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8–9 minutes, or until the edges are light brown and the cookie no longer looks wet in the center.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes on the sheet pan. Remove the cookies and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
