Serves 30 servings | Prep Time 15 minutes + chilling | Cook Time 15 min./batch

Ingredients

1 cup butter, softened
5 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Confectioners' sugar


In a small bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add the flour, beating on low speed just until combined. Stir in pecans. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes or until easy to handle.



Shape 1/2 cupfuls into 1/2-in.-thick logs. Cut logs into 2-in. pieces. Place 2 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until lightly browned. Roll warm cookies in confectioners' sugar; cool on wire racks.

Notes

Folks always expect to find these tender, nutty logs on the cookie gift trays I give at Christmas. They're not overly sweet and go great with a steaming cup of coffee or tea.

A dash of local for every season
