Hello everybody! Sam right here from Sugar Spun Run with one other mushy & chewy cookie recipe! Final time I shared my recipe for Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles and immediately I’ve these Butter Pecan Cookies!

I’ve been baking quite a bit with pecans not too long ago, making the whole lot from Pecan Pie to Candied Pecans, and immediately I made a decision so as to add them to a buttery batch of cookies!

Many butter pecan cookie recipes are typically crisp and a bit too dry for my liking. For immediately’s recipe I knew I needed a mushy, thick, chewy cookie, and this recipe delivers!



These butter pecan cookies are fairly easy and easy to make, however I did need to embrace a couple of ideas for you!

Ideas for Making Butter Pecan Cookies

  • Toasting your pecans is non-obligatory, however I actually suggest it for this butter pecan cookie recipe. It takes lower than 5 minutes and enhances the flavour and crispness of the pecans!
  • Toast your pecan halves earlier than chopping them. This can guarantee even toasting (no burnt or under-done items this manner!) Simply ensure you allow them to cool earlier than chopping them!
  • Let your butter cool for at least 10 minutes earlier than including the sugar. In case your butter is simply too scorching, it’ll find yourself melting your sugar and also you’ll have a runny cookie dough that may unfold throughout your cookie sheet whenever you go to bake it.
  • The toffee bits add a pleasant additional dimension of taste and texture to those cookies, I can’t get pleasure from butter pecan cookies with out them anymore!
  • Any leftover butter pecan cookies (haha, not in my home!) could be saved in an hermetic container at room temperature for 3-5 days.

Get pleasure from! For those who check out these butter pecan cookies for your self I’d like to know what you assume!
