Description

The perfect holiday cookie recipe.

Ingredients

  • 8 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter, Softened
  • ⅓ cups Granulated Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 3 drops Green Food Coloring, Optional
  • 1 cup Flour
  • ⅛ teaspoons Salt
  • ⅓ cups Chopped Pecans
  • ½ cups Powdered Sugar, For Dusting

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350 F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, vanilla and food coloring until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle the flour and salt over the top and stir together with a spatula. Finally, stir in the pecans.

Divide into 12 dough balls and place them on the cookie sheet with just a bit of space in between. Bake for 10-14 minutes. Look for slightly browning edges and remove the pan from the oven when done.

Let cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, pour the powdered sugar into a small shallow bowl. Remove each cookie from the sheet and roll it carefully in powdered sugar. Move the cookies to a rack to cool completely before serving.
