Acorn Magic Delights Recipe
- 1 cup butter, melted
- ¾ cup packed brown sugar
- 1 ½ cups finely chopped pecans
- 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
step 1: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
step 2: In a large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar, 3/4 cup chopped pecans, and vanilla until well blended. Combine flour and baking powder, and stir into the butter mixture. Shape dough into 1 inch balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten cookies slightly to keep them from rolling off of the pan, and pinch the tops to a point to resemble acorns.
step 3: Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven, or until firm. Remove from cookie sheet to cool on wire racks.
step 4: In the top of a double boiler, melt chocolate chips, stirring frequently until smooth. Remove from heat; keep chocolate warm over water in the double boiler. Dip pointy ends of cooled cookies into melted chocolate, then into the remaining 3/4 cup chopped pecans. Allow cookies to set on waxed paper.
