These are nice light crispy cookies. I'd put these up against anything made by little elves in a tree!
Pecan Shortbread CookiesYield: 39 Cookies
2 cup finely ground pecans
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
2/3 cup sugar, plus more for coating
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
2 cups all purpose flour
Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Form cookies into balls about the size of walnuts.
Roll the cookie balls in extra granulated sugar. Place the balls on the cookie sheets. Flatten the balls to about 1/4 inch thickness with the bottom of a glass dipped in sugar.
Bake until golden brown (be sure to watch the edges), about 15 minutes.
Cool the cookies on a wire rack.
....and that's What's Cooking at Cathy's ~ Enjoy!
