Iced Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

Iced Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

I love all cookies, some better than others. Oatmeal cookies are always a hit and these were wonderful, a little crispy on the edges and chewy in the middle. You can omit the coffee flavored glaze but why would you:)

1 cup butter

3/4 cup sugar

3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups quick cooking oats (I used 2 cups quick cooking and 1 cup old fashioned oats)

3/4 cup pecans, finely chopped

Cream butter and sugars till fluffy, after 2 minutes it was fluffy and creamy.
