These cookies are so good and they will more or less melt in your mouth.. luckily they are easy to make, too.
Here is the recipe, enjoy!
- 5 oz. (125 g) pecans
- 3 1/4 cups (400 g) all-purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cup (345 g) unsalted butter
- 1/2 cup (120 g) regular sugar
- 1/2 cup (65 g) powdered sugar + extra for dusting the baked cookies
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 350˚F (180˚C).
Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
Finely grind the pecans and tip into a bowl. Add the flour and salt and stir to combine.
Put the butter into a mixing bowl and beat until fluffy. Add the vanilla, sugar and powdered sugar and beat for a few minutes.
Add the pecan mixture to the batter and mix until everything is well blended.
Use a small ice cream scoop (1 inch/2,5 cm) to make small mounds and arrange them on the lined baking tray. Make sure you leave some space between them to allow for spreading during baking.
If you don’t have a small ice cream scoop just use a regular tablespoon.
When the cookies are ready baked, use a small sieve and dust the cookies liberally with powdered sugar.
Repeat after 5 minutes.
Now nothing remains but to enjoy these cookies with a class of cold milk or a cup of tea or coffee.
