STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS
You start with butter and sugar, creamed to a state of fluffiness followed by vanilla, then flour and glorious chopped pecans. Isn't that quick and easy!!?
Roll into 1" balls and place onto cookie sheet and bake in 325°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
Roll them in powdered sugar as soon as they come out of the oven. I like to roll them once, then have a small bowl of icing sugar beside the cookies and use a spoon to scoop over top of the cookie. Let the excess fall back into the bowl and repeat with the next cookie.
If you haven't tried these before, you're in for a special treat. I bet you can't have just one!
