Why I Love This Recipe

It's nearing cookie exchange season. These are some of my favorite cookies and really simple as well!

Ingredients You'll Need

1 cup butter
3 cup brown sugar
4 eggs, beaten
1 t. salt
1 t. baking soda
3 t. vanilla
2 cups finely chopped pecans
4 cups flour


Melt butter and add brown sugar.

Mix well and let cool.

Add beaten eggs and mix.

salt, baking soda, vanilla and nuts.

Mix well.

Add flour and mix until flour is thoroughly distributed.

Scoop dough in walnut sized balls and place on a greased cookie sheet (or use a silpat).

Bake at 350°F 10-12 minutes.

Allow to cool for a minute then remove to cooling rack.

They are crisp first day and then chewy.

They also bake well from frozen.
