Yummy Butter Pecan Cookies

I got this recipe from one of the bloggers and have tried it myself, oh boy! It is so good! So good that I have to hide it from my hubby and son for these guys love cookies so much. I have posted it here knowing you people who are cookie lovers might want to try it, plus you can give it to your neighbors and friends this Christmas. I am sure I will; it is one of the many traditions we do on Christmas.

1 1/2 cups chopped roasted pecans

2 sticks or 1 cup unsalted butter, room temp
2/3 cups sugar
2 teaspoons ground nutmeg
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 eggs, lightly beaten

1. Roast the pecan nuts for 1 minute-high in microwave oven. Roughy chop and set aside.
2. Cream the butter using electric mixer. Add sugar, and cream together.
3. Add flour, salt and nutmeg. Mix well. Add the lightly beaten eggs and mix well.
4. Fold in pecans.
5. Using your bare hands, make a ball of your cookie dough. Arrange in cookie sheets 2 inches apart, and flatten using a fork. Shape the edges if necessary.
6. Bake in a 175C preheated oven for 15-20 minutes.
7. Serve warm, fresh from the oven.
