confectioners' sugar for decoration
Christmas wouldn't be the same without these cookies! We've always baked ours slightly different; 250 deg. for one hour. I like my pecans finely ground and an extra tsp. of vanilla.
the cookies/rolls turn out too dry I was not happy with them
I made these for my mom and I to enjoy...we love anything with a nut in them. I felt like the dough was a little flat, like something was missing, so the next time I make them I will try adding some almond extract in addition to the vanilla.
these are wonderful, I do not use water in my recipe. Also I roll them in Confectioners' sugar first while warm and then again when completely cooled. Makes a much prettier presentation. I usually bake about 1000 of them for gifts for Christmas. Last year I made something different and caught all kinds of flack from family and friends for not making everyone's favorite cookie. so bake to baking this year.
This Christmas my Mom requested that I make a "wedding cookie" like my Aunt used to make. After I looked over several different recipes, I choose to go with this one. It was a big hit! I have put it in my recipe book and will make them again. I added a dash more vanilla and rolled in them powdered sugar while warm and then again when cooled!
Not too sweet; an enjoyable pie crust like texture.
This was my 1st attempt at making these delicious cookies! Everyone loved them! Perfect for Holiday Gift Giving!
