  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 & 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped

Preheat oven to 350°.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat butter and sugar until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes). Beat in vanilla and salt. With mixer speed on low, gradually add flour and beat just until combined. Fold in pecans.

Roll dough into 1 & 1/2-inch balls. Place about 2 inches apart on lined baking sheets. Lightly flatten each with the bottom of a dampened glass.

Bake cookies until golden brown (about 15-17 minutes). Cool completely on wire racks.

Makes about 18 cookies.
