  • 1/4 cut butter
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsps light corn syrup
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 tsps rum extract
  • 3/4 cup finely ground pecans
  • whole pecans

Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a small pot.  Remove and add the flour, extract and ground pecans and mix well.

Line cookie sheets with aluminum foil (easy release is best – do not use parchment)

Drop mixture by scant 1/2 teaspoonfuls onto sheet.  Top each with one whole pecan.

Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool completely.

Meanwhile, melt about 1 cup semisweet chocolate bits with 1 tsp shortening in microwave.  Put into a plastic bag.  Let sit until it cools completely.

Cut a very small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe zig zags on tops of cookies.  Cool completely.

These freeze very well up to 3 months.
