Butter Pecan Icebox Cookies

Butter Pecan Icebox Cookies are a delicious and easy option to have available at the holidays. I made these ahead and have them waiting in the freezer until I need them. Then it’s a quick slice and bake and you will have a house that smells of butter, pecans and toffee. Yum!

#ChristmasCookies Week is a sponsored event and Millican Pecan is sponsoring today’s post. In exchange for sharing this recipe, I received a variety of pecan products. All thoughts, ideas, recipes, pictures, and opinions contained within this post are solely my own and not necessarily that of the sponsor.

Christmas Cookies Week

I would like to thank our sponsor, Millican Pecan for sending us a variety of pecans to use in our recipes. I have worked with Millican Pecans before and have found them to be of great quality and extremely easy to use. It nice that you can purchase the pecan meal to use in cookies, which I did with some Bourbon Balls, maybe I’ll share those another time. Today I’m using the Pecan Pieces.

Butter Pecan Icebox Cookies Recipe

I like to gather all my ingredients before I start a recipe. This way I know I have everything needed to put together the recipe quickly. In the past I must admit that when I haven’t done this I have had to make a last minute run to the store. Now I do this every time. After gathering the ingredients, I measure them all out in the order they will go into the mixer. This way I don’t make any measuring mistakes while working with the batter.
