Easy Butter Pecan Cookies

READY IN: 13mins
Recipe by moreCakePlz

This is one of my most requested cookies. It is crunchy on the outside, soft on the inside, and oh so nutty good. Make sure you don't overcook them, they will harden and set-up as they cool. Take them out of the oven when the edge start to brown and the top is still pale. I'm not sure about the number of servings, but it makes a lot.

My DH really enjoyed these. Using 1 tablespoon measuring spoon, mine baked in 9 minutes per tray and it made total of 3 dozen cookies. I left the pecans out of half of them for grandsons. Thanks for posting.
