Yield: 5 dozen

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup salted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups sifted cake flour or all-purpose flour
  • Confectioners' sugar

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F. Grind pecans in food processor to consistency of coarse meal. Set aside. With a mixer on medium speed, beat butter until soft. Add sugar, vanilla, and pecans. Carefully add flour and blend well. Coat hands with flour; roll dough into cherry-size balls. Place on greased baking sheet (or parchment paper).
Bake until lightly golden brown on the bottom, 15 to 20 minutes. While cookies are still quite warm, roll them in confectioners' sugar. When cool, roll again. These cookies can be made up to 3 days in advance.
