Ever reached into your pantry to pull out a rock-solid bag of brown sugar? That’s a sure sign your baking took a sabbatical. But if there’s any recipe that could reignite that (oven) flame, it’s good old fashioned butter pecan cookies. Their crisp, nutty edges blend into a soft, shortbread center that melts – like buttah – in your mouth. That caramel-tinted sugar will never go to waste again.
