These Butterscotch Pecan Cookies are the perfect combo of salty and sweet. These cookies are loaded with chopped pecans and butterscotch chips and their soft gooey & buttery flavor will melt in your mouth.
I cannot believe there are only a few more days until Christmas. I don’t know if its’ because Thanksgiving was so late in November or we’ve just had a crazy amount of busy-ness this year, but I blinked and now it’s mid-December.
And I’m feeling the crunch.
I do have my tree up and my Christmas cards mailed, but that’s about it. The shopping is not finished. The house is not as decorated as I like. I haven’t wrapped the gifts I do have. I’m not even sure I have wrapping paper.
Regardless of all of that, at least I have cookies!!
Butterscotch Pecan Cookies
I love for my cookies to have texture and these cookies have everything I dream of! They’re soft, gooey, crunchy and all the yum!
One of my other most favorite of all time cookies are these Oatmeal Pecan Cookies and wow… so much love!
My favorite way to eat these cookies is when they’re still warm and melty. With a tall glass of ice-cold milk… or if I’m being honest, a Diet Dr. Pepper 😊
Alrighty… since I should really be wrapping presents, I’m gonna stop chattering and share the recipe! If you’re ready to bake, the printable recipe is below or you can join my daily email list and you’ll instantly get a printable pdf in your inbox!
