Golden Butterscotch Icebox Cookies
- In a large bowl beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, salt, and baking soda. Beat until combined, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour and the pecans.
- Divide dough in half. Shape each portion of dough into an 8-inch-long roll. Wrap rolls in plastic wrap or waxed paper and chill about 2 hours or until dough is firm enough to slice.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Cut rolls into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place slices 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are firm. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool.
