Recipe Notes

As mentioned, I suggest purchasing pecan halves in this recipe. This will allow you to chop what you need for the cookie batter and still have halves to stink on to the top of the cookie.
You will need to brown your butter for this recipe.
To brown your butter, use a light colored pan on medium heat. Swirl the pan as the butter progresses from a foam to a brown and emit a nutty aroma. There are more great tips for browning butter in the post.
