Cream together the butter and sugar until light. Add flour, pecans and vanilla. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place on greased baking sheet and flatten slightly. Bake at 300 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes to only a light color. Roll in additional confectioners sugar while warm. Let cool, roll again in confectioners sugar. Recipe by: Susie Mundy
asyaver 1y agoI put 2 tablespoons of sugar because once they are rolled in more after baking they become very sweet and the less sweetened cookie part counteracts that nicely giving it good texture.
BethNal 1y agolove these! I sprinkled with a bit of cinnamon before rolling them in the sugar and it gave them a little more flavor.
leadelhurley 1y agoI have made these for for over 20 years. My recipe calls for 3 Tablespoons conf sugar. But I'm sure 2 T would work too. Don't make them too big because they get bigger as they bake. They are very rich and always very popular at Christmas.
