Butter Pecan Cookies


Buttery, tender and delicious biscuits bursting with toasted pecans and the taste of brown sugar.

Maybe it's just me, but I think butter pecan is an underappreciated ice cream flavor. Often overlooked, it is one of the "boring" pistachio, rum and grape ice creams. FYI, I love these three flavors of ice cream! And that is exactly why today's cookie recipe is made. It's salty, sweet, and rich in buttery flavor.

If it's not for their soft edges, soft center, and buttery taste, it's the toasted pecans that make these cookies so amazing. The roasted and nutty flavor of these pecans is critical to their taste. If you never toast the nuts before adding them to the recipe, you are missing out on a lot.  In fact, I did the calculations yesterday. It really is much better.

* Ingredients:

° 1 cup chopped pecans

° 7 tablespoons. unsalted butter

° 1/3 cup granulated sugar
