Maple Pecan Cookies

Maple Pecan Cookies

You'll Need
1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (Hellman's)
1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon maple syrup
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
Preheat oven oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together on medium speed for three minutes until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla and mayonnaise and mix until well blended. Add the maple syrup and blend well.
In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture by spoonfuls to the brown sugar mixture until well incorporated. Fold in the pecans until well incorporated. Cover the cookie mixture with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Using a 1" scoop, drop spoonfuls of the cookie batter onto either a wax paper -or- parchment-lined cookie sheet (I recommend using a new sheet with every batch). Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned around the edges. Cool for a minute before transferring the cookies to a wire rack to completely cool. Store in an airtight container.
Makes 1 cookie shy of 5 dozen
