Butter Pecan. Could two words together be anymore perfect?  This recipe is easy peasy.

You’ll Need:

2 c. pecans

2 stick room temp unsalted butter

2/3 c. sugar

3 tsp. vanilla

pinch of salt

2 c. flour

Entering the Yum Zone:

(1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Toast pecans in oven for about 4 minutes-your nose will let you know once they’re toasted.

(2) In a mixer, beat butter, sugar, vanilla, salt.  Once mixed, slowly add in the flour 

(3) Divide dough to make 24 cookies.

(4) Create a small circle, flaten, and sprinkle sugar on top.

(5) Grease cookie sheet and line cookies, spreading one inch apart

Let them bake for about 12 minutes.  Take them out about one minute shy of looking done-they will continue to harden when you take them out of the oven.  This way you’ll get that flakey buttery consistency. Sprinkle each cookie again with sugar so they sparkle!

Let cool for 10 mins and eat them while they’re hot!
