- Unsalted Butter - Powdered Sugar - Vanilla Extract - Flour - Chopped Pecans
Preheat oven to 350°. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla, slowly add flour, and mix until just combined. Fold in chopped pecans.
ROLL AND BAKE
Roll dough into 2-Tablespoon sized dough balls. Place on prepared cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake cookies for 14-15 minutes until just slightly brown.
While balls cool, sift powdered sugar into a medium bowl. While cookies are still warm, roll them in powdered sugar. Place on a cooling rack. Once completely cool, roll again in powdered sugar.
Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 3 days or freeze for up to one month.
