  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • Powdered sugar


Preparation time 10mins
Cooking time 35mins


Step 1

Mix all ingredients together. Roll into balls or crescents. If you choose to roll into balls, flatten with a fork once on the cookie sheet.

Bake at 350°F oven for 12-15 minutes - until just golden brown.

Once cool, pour powdered sugar into a bowl and place one cookie at a time in the bowl so that it can be enrobed in the powdered sugar.

These can be made weeks ahead of time and frozen. But add the powdered sugar after you defrost the cookies to serve.

And you may want to double this recipe - they go SO fast and they are very easy to make. ENJOY!
