Servings: 2 1/2 dozen
Cook Time: 1 hour 40 min
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar, plus more for coating cookies
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting hands
1 cup chopped pecans, (very small pieces)
Preheat oven to 270 degrees F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Using an electric mixer at low speed, cream the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the vanilla. At low speed gradually add the flour. Mix in the pecans with a spatula.
