    blucoat's Note:

    This is a pecan, crumbly, melt-in-your-mouth, cookie, that's perfect in the winter season, as the powdered sugar dusted on the cookies resembles snow. These are surprisingly quick and easy to make. This is an American twist on a classic Italian recipe, as it is made with pecans rather than the traditional almonds or hazelnuts. It's from Gourmet Magazine (Nov. 1986) and is currently featured as one of "Gourmet’s Favorite Cookies: 1941-2008".
