These pecan butter cookies are easy to make & even easier to eat! Enjoy!
- 1 cup sifted flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
Sift together the flour and salt. Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Add flour and mix until blended. Add pecans and stir to distribute evenly. Chill if necessary to handle dough easily. Shape into one inch balls and place a few inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a slow oven (325 degrees) for about 25 minutes. Remove from oven and place on wire rack. Cookies, while still warm, may be rolled in confectioner’s sugar or a mixture of granulated sugar and cinnamon. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.
