Ingredients25 m servings 233 cals
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
- Combine flour, white sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and baking soda together in a bowl, breaking up any large lumps of brown sugar. Stir butter, egg, vanilla extract, and rum-flavored extract into flour mixture until dough forms; add chopped pecans and mix until well blended. Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place 2 inches apart on prepared baking sheets. Press a pecan half on top of each ball.
- Bake in the preheated oven until edges of cookies are golden brown, 9 to 11 minutes. Sprinkle salt onto each cookie and gently press each with the back of a spatula to set the salt.
- Cook's Note:
- A very nice upgrade is to drizzle a little fresh orange glaze on the top of each cookie after they have cooled half-way.

Mom was up for daughter's baby shower, loves a cookie after dinner. I saw this recipe and felt it was a perfect match (she likes pecan sandies). The batch came out, taste tested myself before...
Nice for a change cookie! Halved the sugar as I always do and used dark rum instead of extract.
I'm a little biased here - these cookies are the best I've had.
Good flavor, easy to make. Multiple family members say these are a keeper so they will go in the cookie rotation. I don't think the name fits though, and am trying to come up with a new one.
I followed the recipe and the cookies came out a little flatter then I had expected. My husband liked these cookies more then I did.
