A Recipe a Week #1

This is weekly post created by my bloggy friend Shasta over at Crackers and Chaos! Go check out her blog and see all the great recipes she posts on Sundays!


This is a recipe that I got out of the back of a Martha Stewart magazine. These are amazing cookies that are pretty easy to make too!! Though they aren't very diet friendly with all the sugar and butter!! But they are oh so yummy!!

Pecan Butter Cookies

1 cup of pecans

2 sticks of unsalted butter, softened

1 cup confectioners' sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups all purpose flour

Preheat oven to 325. Cream butter and sugar until pale. Add vanilla and salt. Gradually add flour, beating until just incorporated. Stir in pecans. Cover and refridgerate until firm {15-30 mins}. Drop 2 tablespoon scoops of dough onto baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes or until edges of the cookies are golden. Cool for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack. Dust with confectioners' sugar before serving.

Pin It!

My mother would love these. I cannot make these at our house due to nut allergies galore, but they do sound good!
