    1. 1
      Heat over to 350

      Combine butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar and vanilla* in a large bowl and mix with electric mixer for about 3 minutes on high speed until mix is light and fluffy.

      Add flour, salt and nuts to the butter mix slowly at low speed until all ingredients are blended.

      Divid cookie dough in half. Shape each cookie dough portion into a log, 1 1/2" in diameter. Wrap the logs in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour or more.

      Cut the dough logs into 1/4" slices and place 1/2" apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.

      Bake cookies for 15 minutes or until lightly browned on top. Remove cookies from the baking sheet immediately and roll them in the remaining powdered sugar.

      Place cookies on a rack to cool before storing in a container.

      *I always use Mexican vanilla when baking and it makes a difference.

      i like to add a bit more sugar than called for. They also freeze well for make ahead preparation. Just thaw on cookie sheets while oven preheats then bake as usual.

      i have been making these for months and my family loves them. i made them for a party and they were a huge hit. i use a bit more sugar than called for (only about 1/4 c) and always go a little over 1 c pecans. such a great recipe, though- thanks for sharing!
