This recipe is great! I have been making them for a couple of years now for my husband, and they are his favorite. If you turn down the oven temperature to 350, the cookies are soft and chewy. People who don't even like nuts love these cookies. I will be using this recipe for many years to come.

These were a big hit with people in my office. Not too sweet, for the nut lover.

Just as promised, a delicious butter pecan cookie. I only had salted butter, so i just cut the amount of salt in half in the recipe and it turned out great. Don't skip the toasting step, it really does enhance the nutty flavor. I also decreased the oven temp to 360 and baked for 10 min and they were crunchy on the edges and chewy in the middle--just how we like them! This was a nice change of pace from the regular cookies out there!

Great cookie recipe! I am a lover of nuts and this has alot of pecans in it. This is a really great chewie, buttery cookie that has wonderful butterscotch flavor. I thought toasting the pecans was a great flavor enhancer and made the nuts oh, so crunchy.

Excellent cookie! Not too sweet, and the pinch of salt makes it so much better. I only baked it for about 8 min, then put it on broil for 1 minute. Such a pretty golden brown. Yummy!

These are awesome! I just added "Vanilla, Butter, & Nut" flavoring.....yummy!

These cookies are very good! It's like a chocolate chip cookie, only with buttered pecans instead of chocolate chips. Don't skip the parchment, it keeps the bottoms from getting over-browned :) Thanks for the recipe!
