Slice n Bake Butter Pecan Cookies: Table for Seven

It's a bit of a rare occurrence that cookies are baked in my house and they are not of the chocolate chip or peanut butter variety.

We do have the occasional fruit flavored, however, I do love a good butter cookies, and these seem to fit the bill perfectly.

These cookies were originally shared here on Table for Seven back in 2012.  I believe about 10 people checked them out and the pictures were bad. Really bad.  I actually removed the label from the them and hid them from my recipe index for quite a while.  The whole post was really embarrassing.

The cookies were good. The post? Not so much.

It's too bad so many missed out on these the first time around. They are really a delicious cookie! Soft, buttery and packed with pecans. These are also slice n bake cookies.

After mixing your dough, you form it into a log and wrap in plastic wrap. Then, store it in your refrigerator for at least 3 hours to get firm.  Then, slice them up and bake your cookies. The nice thing is you can store the dough for longer than 3 hours, even overnight, until you are ready to bake the cookies.

You can also slice the dough as thick or thin as you like. Mine are sliced about 1 1/2 inch at that is what the below cook time is based on.  If you slice them thinner or thicker, adjust your baking time accordingly.

A simple classic!
