Butter-Pecan Cookies

After a long weekend full of events this cookie night turn I went for a very simple cookie recipe, butter-pecan cookies.

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2/3 cup chopped pecans
Extra whole pecans for decorating.
To begin this cookie mix the flour and salt in a bowl. In a mixer combine the butter and sugar until beat smooth. Add in the flour and salt to the mixing bowl, then add in the egg yolk. Beat until fully combined. The chopped pecans can now be added, then mixed into the batter.
These cookies are baked as simple drop cookies. The batter will spread out however so space each drop at least three inches apart. Press a whole pecan into the center of each cookie drop. Bake at 325F for 15 minutes.
I hope you enjoy these cookies, their buttery and sweet!
