Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup pecans, lightly toasted
1/2 cup unsalted butter, cut 1/2 inch pieces
1/4 cup dark brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch salt
powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 325. Combine all ingredients except powdered sugar in processor. Using on/off turns, process until mixture resembles coarse meal; then process continuously until dough begins to come together.

Roll 2 teaspoonfuls of dough between palms of hands to form 2 1/2 inch long rope, tapering at ends. Place on ungreased baking sheet; curl in ends to form crescent shape. Repeat with remaining dough, spacing cookies 1" apart.

Bake cookes until just firm to touch, about 20 minutes. Cool on sheet 5 minutes. Transfer to rack to cool. Sift powdered sugar over. Store
