  1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine brown sugar, butter, corn syrup, eggs, salt, and chopped pecans. Stir constantly until slightly thickened. Remove from heat and set aside.
  3. Dust work area with flour and slightly roll out the crust. Using a circular cookie cutter, cut out circles for the cookies. Place crusts on a lined baking sheet.
