1 cup butter softened
1/2 cup powder sugar
1/4 t baking powder
2 cup chopped pecans
1 t vanilla
Powder sugar sifted in quart plastic bag
Oven 350º Parchment paper covered cookie sheets.
Beat butter until fluffy. Add dry ingredients and pecans. Mix until incorporated. Roll* into 1 inch balls. Bake until light brown about 15 minutes. Cool then place a few at a time in bag with powder sugar. Gently toss until coated and place on wire rack.
*Note: Tried 1 inch cookie scoop but still ended up rolling the cookies into tighter balls.
