Received this recipe in a email last year. Looked good so decided to give it a try. So glad, its a pretty little cookie with the nuts around the outside and the yummy candy in the center of the cookie. Does make a nice presentation on a assorted cookie tray for the holidays.


  • 1 bag MILKY WAY Brand MINIS
  • 8 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 cookie sheets
  • Parchment paper


  • In a large bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, salt, vanilla and half of the chopped pecans (1/2 cup).
  • Mix well until the dough is formed.
  • Shape the dough into a 10-inch log.
  • Place the remaining chopped pecans in a cookie sheet.
  • Roll the log over the nuts until they're completely covered.
  • Wrap the log in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Line the cookie sheet with the parchment paper.
  • Cut the log into 24 slices, each 1/2 inch thick. Place the slices on the prepared cookie sheet, each about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • Remove from the oven, and immediately press a MILKY WAY Brand MINI in the center of each slice.
  • Cool completely before serving.
  • You can exchange the pecans in the recipe with your favorite nuts, such as walnut or hazelnuts.
  • To eliminate nuts completely, just don't add any. Before slicing the dough into cookies, you can roll it in cinnamon sugar so it crusts around the outside.
