Butter Pecan Cookies

Gonna keep this post short and sweet! These cookies are perfect for when you’re in the mood for something salty & sweet!!!

The same dough recipe as my chocolate chip cookie recipe! Instead of chocolate chips, I add 1 cup of chopped pecans and 1 cup of toffee bits!

Before baking, I roll 3 tbs of the dough into round balls and place on baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle each ball of dough with a few crumbles of more pecans, gently press extra pecan crumbles down onto the dough without pressing too hard and misforming the ball shape. Then sprinkle a tad of salt on top and stick into the oven until golden brown. So so good!!

Ingredients:

- 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 1/2 cups light brown sugar
- 1 1/4 cup butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup chopped pecans  
- 1 cup toffee bits 
- 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  For topping
- salt for garnish

Instructions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, cream together butter with the sugar until well combined. Add in the eggs one at a time followed by the vanilla extract. Next, incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter and sugar slowly.

Careful not to over mix the dough. Once the flour mixture is well incorporated, with your hands mix in the pecans and toffee bits.

Stick the dough into the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Once chilled, form 3 tbs worth of dough into balls and place on a large cookie sheet 3 inches apart. Sprinkle each ball of dough with a few more pecans and a touch of salt. Bake anywhere between 16-20 minutes or until golden brown.
