I'm not a mom, but I am busy and I also love a good, homemade cookie! I found this recipe and had to make it and I'm so glad I did. It took me about 30 minutes from start to finish!! These cookies are full of toasty pecan flavor, and not too sweet. Just perfect in my book.

Prep:

15 Min

Cook:

30 Min

Ingredients

1 stick
unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 c
brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp
vanilla extract
1/4 tsp
salt
1 c
all purpose flour
1 c
pecans, coarsley chopped

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 with racks in upper and lower thirds. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in vanilla and salt. Either by hand or with mixer on low, gradually add flour, beating until just combined. Fold in pecans by hand.
2
Roll dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, and place on baking sheets lined with parchment paper, two inches apart, 8 to a sheet. Flatten slightly with palm of hand.
3
I really like to use a small cookie/ice cream scoop when I make cookies - it helps to make them cook more evenly.
4
Bake until cookies are golden brown, 15 -17 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking. Transfer to wire racks to cool. Store in airtight container for 5 days.......if they last that long.

enjoy!
