½ pound of butter
2 cups of flour, sifted
1 Teaspoon of vanilla
3 heaping kitchen tablespoons of powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans
Additional powdered sugar for rolling
Cover cookie sheets with foil or grease lightly
Mix thoroughly all ingredients except the nuts with electric mixer
Add pecans and shape into teaspoon size ovals
Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until set
Do not over bake! They should not be brown!
Roll in powdered sugar immediately when removed from oven. (And some of you wonder where I got my asbestos hands?)
Roll again when cool
Makes 3-5 dozen
Mom got this from her first voice teacher and you can use Chocolate chips instead of pecans.
When she packed them in the cookie tins she packed them in more powdered sugar under and between the layers.
