MOST YUMMY PECAN COOKIES
This is not my own cookie recipe, I got it probably out of a magazine, a long time ago. So I give credit to the creator who is unknown to me.
Those cookies are absolutely delicious and very easy to make.
300 gr. butter, soft
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
3 cups flour
1/2 cup oats
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 cups pecans, crushed (or walnuts)
Beat butter and sugar, add egg, vanilla and almond extract and beat until creamy. Add flour, oats and salt, mix, then stir in the pecans. Put tablespoons full of dough on a tray lined with baking paper, flatten it a little bit with the spoon (put an almond or a nut in the middle if you wish), and bake on 180 degrees (preheated) for 15 to 18 minutes, until edges begin to brown lightly.
How to crush the nuts? I put them between two kitchen towels and beat them with the wooden dough roller! Works perfect!
