Butter Pecan Cookies

A simple buttery classic. Light and flaky, much like a shortbread or traditional butter cookie but with a wonderful pecan flavor. They're excellent on their own or with a chocolate drizzle, possibly crumbled over ice cream as a topping, or paired with a mixed berry salad for a light dessert. These are a slice-and-bake cookie which means the dough is formed into a log and refrigerated, then each cookie is sliced off the log for baking. The dough can be made well in advance (even frozen) until needed; just let it thaw a bit before slicing. You only have to bake as many as you want at a time—refrigerate or freeze the rest until later.
