Ingredients

2 cups butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tea vanilla extract
1 tea baking soda
1/2 tea baking powder
1/2 tea salt
3 cups all-purpose flour
2/3 cup chopped pecans
2 tea vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups Powdered sugar
1/2 cup hot water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees


Heat butter over medium heat for 5 minutes or so, until it turns nut brown in color.


The foaming and bubbling is part of the browning process, but watch it carefully so that you don't burn the butter. Remove from heat, and cool slightly. Reserve 1/2 cup of the butter for the frosting.


Pour remaining browned butter into a large mixing bowl. Beat browned butter with brown sugar until the butter is no longer hot. Mix in eggs, 2 teaspoons vanilla, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Beat thoroughly. Mix in flour and chopped pecans. Drop tablespoons of dough onto ungreased baking sheets.


Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until light brown around the edges. Cool.


In a medium bowl, mix the reserved 1/2 cup browned butter with 2 teaspoons vanilla, confectioners' sugar, and hot water. Beat until smooth, and use to frost cooled cookies.
