Butterscotch Pecan Sandies
from Baked Perfection

3 c unsifted all-purpose flour
1/2 t baking soda
1 1/3 c unsalted butter, softened
1 c sugar
1 t salt
1 t vanilla
1 large egg
3/4 c chopped pecans
2 c butterscotch chips

What To Do
Preheat oven to 375°F.

Combine flour and baking soda in a small bowl and set aside. In a large mixing bowl cream butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla on medium speed until light. Beat in egg until fluffy. Reduce speed to low, add flour one cup at a time, just until combined. Stir in pecans and butterscotch chips.

With a small scoop or 2 teaspoons, form small balls of dough less than one inch in diameter. Place on baking sheet, allowing 2 inches between cookies. Flatten balls with the bottom of a glass to about 1/4 inch in height. Bake from 8-10 minutes until brown around edges, but tops are still pale. Transfer to racks to cool. Store in airtight container.

My Comments
I bake mine at 350°F for about the same time.  Just have to keep an eye on them…and I use my cookie scoop…and use my fingers to flatten them a bit.

These are so tasty!
