Butterscotch Pecan Sandies

3 cups unsifted flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 & 1/3 cup unsalted butter ( I use a little less and decrease salt to 1/2 tsp if using salted...)
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 large egg
3/4 cup chopped pecans
2 cups butterscotch chips (I don't use quite that much...)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Combine flour and soda in small bowl.

Cream butter, sugar, salt, and vanilla in large mixing bowl on med speed until light. Beat in
egg until fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add flour one cup at a time, until just combined.
Stir in pecans and butterscotch chips.

With small scoop, form balls of dough less than one inch in diameter. Place on baking sheets,
allowing 2 inches between cookies. Flatten balls to about 1/4 inch thick. Bake for 8-10
minutes or until the edges just begin to brown. Tops should remain pale. Store in
airtight container.
