Pecans give these delicious little butter cookies extra texture and flavor. The cookies are rolled in confectioner's sugar after they come out of the oven.
- 8 ounces butter (softened)
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 3/4 cup confectioner's sugar (plus more for rolling)
- 2 cups all-purpose flour (sifted)
- 2 cups pecans (chopped)
Gather the ingredients and preheat the oven at 300 F.
Cream the butter and stir in the vanilla.
Gradually work in the confectioner's sugar and flour.
Add chopped pecans and work it into the dough.
Pinch off the dough and roll to form balls about the size of a quarter.
Place on greased or parchment-lined baking sheets; bake for 10 minutes, then increase the heat to 325 F and bake for 5 to 10 more minutes.
Roll the cookies in confectioner's sugar after they've cooled.
Serve and enjoy!
