Butter Pecan Cookies

Pecans in my part of the world are an exotic nut and used to be hard to find. If you are based in South America/USA/Canada (that part of the world), Pecans will most likely be a daily item since they are grown in/around those regions. So, this was my first time baking with Pecans.

I love the subtle but strong earthy flavour Pecans bring to the table. Yes, I know I used subtle and strong together but if you are a Pecan fan (or nuts in general actually especially hazelnuts and walnuts) you know what I mean! These cookies are simple in terms of their flavour profile as well as method of preparation. I won’t do my normal run through with this one but you can scroll down for the recipe.  🙂

If you like some extra sugar in your cookies, then you can just roll them in castor sugar once baked. That also makes them look prettier. I was going for more of a home-made that makes you feel warm inside vibe than a quaint cafe that you love but is more of a special treat than an everyday thing.
I don’t know if that sentence made sense at all, it did in my head anyway.

I hope you enjoy these cookies. Have fantastic weekend everyone! Hug someone close to you and treat yourself!  ♥
