Chrispy's Butter Pecan Cookies


Chrispy's Butter Pecan Cookies
from Everyday Food Cookie Edition
  • 3/4 c pecans (chopped finely)
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/3 c sugar, plus more for coating and sprinkling
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 1/8 t salt
  • 1 c all-purpose flour

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. With an electric mixer, beat butter and 1/3 c sugar until light and fluffy, about 1 min.  Beat vanilla, salt, and flour, scraping down sides of bowl as necessary, just until dough comes together.  Fold in pecans.
  3. Separate dough into 12 equal pieces.  Squeeze dough into balls; roll in sugar.  Place balls on a baking sheet, 3 inches apart.  gently flatten with the bottom of a glass (reshape sides if necessary).  Sprinkle with more sugar.
  4. Bake until cookies are golden brown, about 15 min.  Sprinkle with more sugar.  Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.

Makes 12 cookies. I got 21 so your results may vary.
Very flaky and tasty!
