- 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup (about 4 ounces) very finely chopped pecans
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
In your mixer, cream together the butter salt, vanilla, and 3 tablespoons of the powdered sugar until smooth and fluffy. Add the flour and pecans, and mix on low speed until dough just comes together, about 1 minute. Form into small 1-inch balls of dough. Place them 1-inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, or until they are lightly browned.
While the cookies are still a bit warm, roll them in the remaining powdered sugar. Cool completely, and store in an air tight container. It is tradition to wrap these rich cookies in colored tissue paper with fringed edges.
