Butterscotch cookies with pecans are an amazing flavor combination.


Why have I never mixed butterscotch and pecans together before??  So, sooooo, good.  The cookie container went from full to the brim to empty in record. time.

I am going to work on an oatmeal butterscotch chip cookies recipe soon.  I think that flavor combo would work well too.  I’ve been inspired by the butterscotch/pecan combo.

My butterscotch chocolate chip cookies recipe is a family favorite as well.  So many ways to enhance butterscotch!

Tips:

  1. I used butter flavored crisco instead of butter for this recipe.  The crisco created a lighter tasting cookie with the perfect amount of crunch.
  2. I used pecan pieces as opposed to chopped pecans.  The larger pecan pieces I believe are the perfect choice for this recipe.  The pecan flavor shines.
  3. Since butterscotch chips are sweeter than chocolate chips, I used 1 1/2 cups of chips as opposed to my chocolate chip cookies where I always add at least 2 cups.
  4. I made one cookie tray with a cooking time of 9 minutes and one with 11 minutes.  The 9 minutes was chewy and the 11 minutes were nice and crunchy.  Depending on your mood, you can adjust the cook time as you see fit.

I do not know why, but these cookies taste like an old fashioned butterscotch cookies recipe.  Maybe the toasted pecans?

These are a real treat.  Hope you enjoy them as much as we did.
