    Heat oven to 375°F. Cut dough into 1/4-inch slices with sharp knife. On ungreased cookie sheet, place slices 1 inch apart. Press 1 pecan half on each cookie.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until edges begin to brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.

  • Toast nuts in shallow pan in 350ºF oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • Each time you slice a cookie, roll the roll of cookie dough a quarter turn to prevent flattening on one side.
  • Cookie dough can be frozen for up to 9 months. To freeze refrigerator cookie dough, wrap rolls of dough in foil or freezerproof wrap.
