Pecan sandies

Posted in Desserts at 9:03 pm by Sheila OConnell

These are a classic around the holidays.

1 cup butter, softened

1/2 cup powdered sugar

1 tsp vanilla

2 1/4 cups flour

1/4 tsp salt

3/4 cup finely chopped nuts

extra powdered sugar


Heat oven to 400. Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, and vanilla. Mix in flour, salt, and nuts until dough holds together.

Shape dough into 1″ balls. Place about 1″ apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until set, but not brown (about 10-12 min)

Roll in powdered sugar while warm. Cool. Roll in powdered sugar again.
