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

  1. Toast 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)
  2. Beat softened butter until creamy.
  3. Add brown sugar, salt, and baking soda.
    Beat until combined, scraping the sides as needed.

    Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined.
  4. Beat in flour until thoroughly combined, then add pecans, mixing well.
  5. Using 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.
  6. Preheat 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.
