Easy Nut Thins

1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1 and ½ cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
5 to 6 dozen pecan halves, optional topping

1. Parchment line two cookie sheets. Set aside.
2. Combine butter and sugar, creaming together on medium high speed of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beating well. Add flour and salt and mix until smooth. Stir in chopped pecans and vanilla, mixing well.
3. Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about two inches apart on parchment-lined cookie sheets. Place a pecan half in center of each cookie, if desired.
4. Bake at 375 degrees for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in a metal tin or glass container. (Plastic makes the cookies loose their crunch.)
