I'll be the first to admit that I am kind of a sugar addict, but I love that these cookies actually aren't as sweet as normal cookies. They're a little more subtle, but still sweet enough to curb your sugar craving. I took them to a church gathering the other night and they were gone in minutes! I'm sure it'll be the same way at your house. (This recipe was adapted from Key Ingredient.)
- 1 cup (2 sticks) butter
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/8 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups ground pecans
- Powdered sugar
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar together until fluffy.
- Add vanilla and mix well.
- Incorporate flour and pecans into mixture. (Batter will seem separated and crumbly. This is perfect.)
- Form into small balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake for 10-13 minutes, or until lightly browned.
- Let cool and roll in powdered sugar just before serving. (If you don't let them cool, then the powdered sugar will get all melty and gross - just a heads up.)
Easy enough, right? If you don't like pecans, feels free to try other nuts instead. Or leave them out all together! I hope you love these little beauties just as much as we do!
