    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Yield:

    dozen

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°F.
    2. 2
      In a food processor with knife blade attached, pulse pecans with 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar until very finely ground.
    3. 3
      In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and ground pecans.
    4. 4
      In a large bowl, with mixer on medium speed, beat butter and sugar 1 minute or until creamy, occasionally scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well mixed. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in flour and pecan mixture just until blended, occasionally scraping bowl.
    5. 5
      Shape dough by rounded measuring teaspoons into 1-inch balls. Place balls, 1 1/2 inches apart, on ungreased large cookie sheet.
    6. 6
      Bake cookies 13 to 15 minutes or until bottoms are browned and cookies are light golden. Let stand on cookie sheet 2 minutes to firm up slightly, then transfer to wire rack to cool. Repeat with remaining dough.
    7. 7
      Place confectioners' sugar in pie plate. Roll cooled cookies in sugar to coat, twice if needed.
    8. 8
      Note: Make sure cookies are completely cooled before rolling in the confectioners' sugar; if they're still warm, the coating will get sticky.
    9. 9
      Store cookies, putting waxed paper between layers, in tightly sealed container at room temperature up to 1 week or in freezer up to 3 months.

      YUM! These were so easy and quick to make. One note though, I didn't expect them to really expand, I've always seen them look like little balls but these did grow a little bit so next time I will be sure to make them a little smaller. Still taste amazing! I'm trying not to eat them all as I fill my gift bags!!

      While I didn't actually make these, I did eat my fair share. Delicious! I plan on adding these to my cookie tray this Christmas. Enjoyed at my Party on a Peso for *ZWT 5*
