These are crispy butterscotch cookies, rich with the taste of butter and toasted pecans.
Since it's a refrigerator cookie, I like to keep a roll or two in my deep freeze and slice and bake as desired!

How to Make GOLDEN BUTTERSCOTCH REFRIGERATOR COOKIES

Step-by-Step

  • 1Toast pecans on a baking sheet in a single layer @350 for 5-7 minutes-until fragrant and golden.

    Allow to cool completely.

    Pulse in a food processor until fairly fine(as pictured)
  • 2Beat softened butter until creamy.
  • 3Add brown sugar, salt, and baking soda.
    Beat until combined, scraping the sides as needed.

    Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
  • 4Beat in flour until thoroughly combined, then add pecans, mixing well.
  • 5Using plastic wrap, spoon dough down the length, and fold wrap over, shaping the dough into a round log approximately 2" across and as long as you like. (I usually make 3-4 logs)
    Refrigerate or freeze until firm enough to cut.
  • 6Preheat oven to 350.

    With a sharp, knife, cut rolls into 1/4" slices.

    Place slices 1 inch apart on parchment lined baking sheets.

    Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.

    Cool on parchment for 3 minutes.

    Transfer cookies to wire rack to finish cooling.

    Cookies should be crisp. Adjust baking time accordingly.
