For the last 33 years these have been my husband's favorite Christmas cookie. He eats these by the handful and gets powdered sugar all over him. They have only a few ingredients and are easy to make. They are the perfect sweet treat with a cup of tea.
2 sticks unsalted butter, melted and chilled
1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2-1/2 cups sifted flour
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
powdered sugar for coating
Chill for a few minutes in refrigerator and shape into 1" balls. Mine are a little bigger than that as I used my cookie scooper. Bake at 325 degrees for 15 minutes.
