Are you ready to tie on your apron and get to baking these yummy pecan and butterscotch cookies? They're really easy to make and sure to be a hit with your loved ones.
I love holiday baking. I find so much enjoyment in being in my kitchen covered in flour while dancing around with the kids to Christmas music. I started mixing these up just as my kids were getting home from school. The cookie dough smelled so good, it was hard to wait for these pecan butterscotch cookies to come out of the oven. My little boys loved having warm cookies and cold milk as a special after school treat. I have a feeling Santa will definitely give two thumbs up to these Christmas cookies that are so easy to make.

Christmas Cookie Baking Supplies
When it comes to baking, I cannot live without parchment paper or silicone baking sheets. They save you from having cookies stick
to your baking sheet and make for super easy cleanup. Other Christmas cookie baking essentials include:
- baking sheets
- a spatula (mine is from this set)
- oven mitts or pot holder (see how I embellished this one from Dollar Tree for Christmas)
- cooling rack
