READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 275.
  • Cream the butter and sugar until smooth.
  • Add vanilla, combine.
  • Add the flour, combine.
  • Mix in the pecans.
  • Scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough, I use a cookie/ice cream scoop, shape into into a cocoon- about 2" by 1/2".
  • Place the cookies on cookies sheet, you can put them fairly close together as they do not rise or spread very much.I always use parchment paper on my cookies sheets.
  • Bake about 45 minutes, you don't really want them to be brown.
  • While the cookies are baking, prepare the powdered sugar. Place some in a large bowl or container, then as you take the cookies out of the oven, layer them with powdered sugar in the bowl I just leave them in the powdered sugar until they cool.
  • Dig them out and tap the sugar off- this is messy but fun- I like a thick layer of sugar on mine and sifting the sugar over the cookies doesn't get them like I want.
  • The ones you don't eat right away keep well in an airtight container.
