Butter pecan cookies are delicious treats that you can have as snacks or desserts. You may even add chocolate chips if desired. For this recipe we used light brown sugar to attain a light color, if you want it darker, you may use dark brown sugar.
Makes 12-15 pieces
1 1/2 cups butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans
Preheat the oven at 375F and slightly grease 2 baking sheets with melted butter.
Place the butter in a bowl and cream it using an electric beater or mixer. Once it is soft, add the sugar and continue to beat it until it is light and fluffy. Fold in the beaten egg.
Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Add it to the butter mixture. Mix well until it becomes smooth. Fold in the chopped pecans.
Place a spoonful of batter onto the baking sheet. Repeat this with the remaining batter. Bake it in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until it is lightly browned.
