So Tasty! My mom loved these cookies. I altered the recipe as suggested and used butter instead of margarine. I also creamed the butter before adding the dry ingredients and 1 3/4 cups of pecans. These were delicious!
I am making these cookies for the first time. I am working on my second batch. the first batch was a little tough to make into balls so I cut down the amount of pecans from 2 cups to 1 3/4 cups. Much easier to form into balls. Thanks for the recipe. They taste great!!!!
These could be the best cookies you ever ate – but they MUST be made with butter!!! I’ve been making this recipe for over 30 years, always with butter – they are a family favorite at Christmas. They literally melt on your tongue. Yummy!!
If you don’t dredge them in the powdered sugar they are just as good and better for you! They have such a little amount of sugar in them to begin with, even my diabetic husband can enjoy a couple on occasion.
My mom, and now me, have made these for many, many years. They are a wonderful butter cookie. Yes, you need to cream the butter and sugar together first. My old family recipe calls for a 325 degree oven and bake for 18-20 minutes. They are light and creamy – dreamy too! I’ve actually made some with walnuts as my husband isn’t too excited about pecans. Both are great – pecans just a little bit better in my opinion. I roll in powdered sugar when they first come out of the oven and then after they’ve cooled, I sprinkle with more powdered sugar. Enjoy!
I thought these were fairly easy to make, i did have a little trouble getting the dough to form (might have been my altitude) they tasted great though thanks !
This is an amazingly easy and very delectable cookie! Comes out nice and soft. My only change was i cook for about twenty minutes then let cool about 8-10 minutes before shaking in the confectioners sugar in a large zip lock bag. Only shake a few at a time and make sure to use fresh sugar half way thru coating. Will use over and over again!
simple to make. very good taste. I had to cut the recipe in half as I didn’t have enough pecans. However, I was still able to get about 20 smaller balls from half the recipe.
These are delicious! They are not for those that like a super sweet cookies though. I rolled mine in the powdered sugar and everyone loved them!
3 cups all-purpose flour
