Pinch of Salt

3 ounces unsalted butter, melted


12 ounces unsalted butter, melted

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

2 and 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

Recipe: Pecan Streusel

On a baking sheet, toast pecans at 350F until they begin to brown and smell nutty. Let cool, then chop.

Mix the rest of the ingredients in a small bowl, then add the cooled chopped pecans.


Preheat oven to 350F and grease three cookie sheets.

Cream butter, vanilla, and both sugars in a medium bowl.

Beat in yogurt and both eggs until smooth.

In a separate bowl, combine all dry ingredients. Slowly mix the dry batter into the wet batter until smooth.

Drop about two tablespoons of dough for each cookie onto the cookie sheet, and then lightly press a bit of the  pecan mixture on top of each cookie.

Bake for 8-11 minutes, or until the bottoms are slightly golden.
