1 stick butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup finely chopped pecans
Confectioners sugar (for rolling cookies after baking)
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add remaining ingredients and shape into small balls or crescents.
Place on greased cookie sheet. (These do not expand, so they may be placed close together).
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. They will NOT be brown.
Remove from cookie sheet and place on wire rack. Let cool 1 minute only.
Roll in confectioners sugar while WARM so sugar will adhere to cookie and shake off excess. Store in airtight container.
