Butter-Pecan Pudding Cookies

Not every new recipe turns out perfectly on the first try, but this one did. With crunchy bits of salty-sweet toffee and nuts in a moist, tender cookie base, they’re about as irresistible as a cookie can get! And the secret, if you can even call it that, is simple enough: two cups of toasted pecans give this cookie the buttery richness it needs to live up to its name!
