    Pecan Sugar Cookies

    From: The Bake Sale Cookbook by Sally Sampson
    A bit like old-fashioned pecan sandies, these rich and nutty cookies truly melt in your mouth.

    Makes: about 3-4 dozen

    1 cup toasted pecans, finely ground
    1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
    6 tablespoons granulated or confectioners' sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon kosher salt
    1/4 cup confectioners' sugar, for sprinkling

    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet and, if desired, line with parchment paper.

    Place the pecans, butter, sugar, vanilla, flour, and salt in the bowl of a mixer fitted with a paddle and mix until well combined. Roll into one big ball, cover with waxed paper or plastic wrap, and refrigerate until firm,
    about 1 to 2 hours.

    To form the cookies, break off small pieces and roll into 1-inch balls. Place on the prepared cookie sheet and flatten each ball into a flat disk using a wet water glass or your hand.

    Transfer the cookies to the oven and bake until they begin to brown, about 14 to 16 minutes. Cool for 2 minutes, remove to a rack, and sprinkle with the confectioners' sugar. Cool the cookie sheet between batches.
