3 1/2 dozen
Preheat oven to 300
1 cup butter
1/2 Cup confectioners sugar; additional conf sugar for rolling the cookies in.
2 Cups flour (White Lily if you can get it)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup pecans, chopped fine
Cream butter and sugar. Add flour and salt and mix gently. Add vanilla and nuts and mix gently. Roll out into fingers or balls. (I use a 1 tbl scoop to portion them and then chill the balls before rolling.) Bake for 10-20 minutes on parchment covered cookie sheets. Watch the cookies carefully. They should just barely brown. Remove from oven, let cool a few minutes, and roll in additional confectioners’ sugar while still warm.
