More About This Recipe

  • Did someon say cookies? Try these Super Easy Butter Pecan Cookies on. OMG. These cookies. Butter. Sugar. Pecans. A frosting drizzle. I HAD NO CHOICE. I had to make these and they were worth the effort (which was no effort at all considering how easy these are to make!). All you do is slice up some ready-made cookie dough, add on some pecans and butter, then bake. Seriously, that's it. And why stop there? Melt some canned frosting in the microwave then drizzle that gorgeousness over the cookies. You can share your creation or keep it all to yourself. Actually, these are so quick and easy, just make two batches!
