These butterscotch cookies have a unique and delicious flavor combination. The toasted pecans atop the crispy cookie provide a perfect balance to the sweetness of the butterscotch.
In a stand or handheld mixer, cream the sugars and crisco together on medium high speed. Add the vanilla in and mix on medium high speed, until combined.
On medium speed, add the eggs in one at a time, mixing, until combined, after each addition.
On low speed, slowly add the flour mixture. Mix until just combined. Do not overmix.
Add in the butterscotch chips and pecans and stir with a wooden spoon, until evenly combined.
Drop by the tablespoonful onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Place a large pecan piece on top of the cookie and press lightly.
Bake 9-11 minutes at 375F degrees. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes, then move cookies to wire rack for further cooling. Enjoy!
