Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat. Stir in the brown sugar, salt, pecan meal, and corn syrup. Whisk until sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in vanilla extract. Set aside to cool for 10-12 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat and drop a scant teaspoonful of cookie dough on the sheet, three inches apart.
Bake for 7-9 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown. Remove them from the oven and allow to finish cooking on the baking for sheet for at least 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
