  Categories: Cookies
       Yield: 16 servings
     3/4 c  Butter or margarine
     3/4 c  Brown sugar; packed
       1    Egg yolk
       1 ts Vanilla
   1 1/2 c  All-purpose flour
     3/4 c  Dairy sour cream
     1/4 c  Brown sugar; packed
     1/2 ts Vanilla
      16    Pecan halves; toasted
     1/2 c  Pecan, toasted; chopped
        Beat the butter or margarine in a large mixing bowl with an electric
   mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add the 3/4 cup brown sugar
   and beat till combined. Beat in egg yolk and the 1 teaspoon vanilla till
   combined.  Beat in as much of the flour as you   can with the mixer. Stir
   in any remaining flour with a   wooden spoon.
        Spread dough in a lightly greased 12-inch pizza   pan, slightly
   building up the edge.  Bake in a 350~F   oven for
        20    minutes or till golden.
        Meanwhile, stir together sour cream, the 1/4 cup brown sugar, and the
   1/2 tsp. vanilla in a small   mixing bowl. Immediately spread over hot
   crust to   within 1/2 inch of edge. Arrange pecan halves around edge of
   crust. Sprinkle with the chopped pecans. Cool thoroughly in pan on a wire
   rack; topping will set as   it cools.  Cut into wedges; serve when cooled.
   Refrigerate leftovers. Makes 12 to 15 servings.
