Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of finely chopped pecans
  • 7 tablespoons of unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 cup of brown sugar, packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • A pinch of salt
  • Pecan halves for topping each cookie

Directions:

  1. Preheat and Prepare: Preheat your oven to a toasty 350ΒΊF and line two baking sheets with parchment paper, ensuring a non-stick baking experience.
  2. Creamy Butter Mixture: In a large bowl, beat together the softened butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar with an electric mixer until the mixture achieves a light and creamy consistency.
  3. Eggcellent Addition: Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the buttery blend, then beat for an additional 2 minutes until the mixture is smooth and well-combined.
  4. Dry Ingredients Unite: Gradually introduce the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt to the wet mixture. Mix until all ingredients are thoroughly combined, creating a luscious cookie dough.
  5. Scoop and Top: Using a medium cookie spoon, scoop out balls of cookie dough onto the prepared baking sheets. To add an extra touch, place a pecan half on top of each cookie, ensuring a beautiful presentation.
  6. Bake to Perfection: Slide the baking sheets into the preheated oven and let the cookies bake until they achieve a golden brown perfection, approximately 10 to 15 minutes. Keep an eye on them to ensure they reach the ideal level of crispiness.
  7. Cooling Elegance: Once baked to perfection, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. This step is crucial to enhance the texture and flavor of your butter pecan cookies.

Helpful Tips:

  • For an even richer flavor, toast the chopped pecans before adding them to the cookie dough. Simply spread them on a baking sheet and toast in the oven for a few minutes until fragrant.
  • Experiment with different types of pecans for varying levels of sweetness and crunch.
  • Store these cookies in an airtight container to maintain their freshness and deliciousness over time.
