When I first started dating my now husband I made these cookies and my now brother in law just fell in love with them. A decade later and he still asks for them. These cookies are made with a cake mix so they are incredibly soft and with only 5 ingredients, they are super easy to make.
Butter Pecan Cookies
- 1 box butter pecan cake mix
- 2 large eggs
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs and oil. Add butterscotch chips and pecans. Mix well.
Roll about 2 tbsp of dough into a ball and placed on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms are barely beginning to brown.
Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 1 minute before removing to cooling rack.
Warning: These cookies are crazy sweet. You can also make these with a white or yellow cake mix if you can't find butter pecan.
