12 cookies


  • 1 ¼ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon baking soda

  • ½ cup butter, softened

  • 1 egg

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon rum-flavored extract

  • ½ cup chopped pecans (Optional)

  • 12 pecan halves (Optional)

  • 1 pinch coarse salt, or to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.
