"These cookies are delicious plain, but I like to make them into sandwich cookies with the brown butter filling. In a pinch, you can use a can of frosting."

  1. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and brown sugar. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Combine flour, pecans and salt; gradually add to the creamed mixture. Shape into two 10-in. rolls; wrap each in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 1-2 hours. Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 11-13 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
  2. For filling, heat butter in a saucepan over medium heat until golden brown. Remove from the heat; add confectioners' sugar, vanilla and enough cream to achieve spreading consistency. Spread on the bottom of half of the cookies; top with remaining cookies.

AMAZING!! I've made these cookies twice in one week!! I followed the directions exactly (except for the cutting, I used a scalloped cookie cutter after rolling dough between plastic wrap) and th...

The cookies were fabulous but are best fresh and warm. They are buttery and flavorful. The icing was unnecessary to me.
