BUTTER PECAN MELTAWAY COOKIES

So, a few years ago I discovered this type of cookie made by David’s. They were sold at Costco, but that year they were only sold around the holidays. I fell in love with them and sent them to all my siblings at Christmastime. This is my homemade version of Butter Pecan Meltaway cookies, so now we can have them whenever we want.

The beauty of these beauties is that they are a delicious sweet treat without being overly sweet. And, they are crazy easy to make. Six ingredients, guys. That’s nothing!

Hey, check out the picture. My sweet little Dawson was helping me take photos for this recipe. I asked him to hold my ring light for me, but he had other ideas. He decided he would help me with my presentation! I thought it was so sweet and cute that I didn’t even take another picture, I left it just like he put it! Meet his Megalodon monster truck. Haha. Sweet boy.
