This recipe came from a friends mom, Ive also had them from my grandmother growing up--not sure if the recipe is the same but I love these. They're so easy. One year for Christmas I decided to make these and add a frozen cranberry to each one. They were a big hit!
- 1 cup softened butter
- 1⁄2 cup icing sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 2 1⁄4 cups flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)
- 1 (10 ounce) bag frozen cranberries
